Modes of Belonging
Few concepts speak of the personal as political as well as the ideas surrounding "home" and "belonging". From home as a place of art, to the city as a place where everyone is a potential foreigner, this series includes texts exploring how artists and curators reveal and repurpose architecture, gendered domesticity, citizenship and spirituality through art. Our writer Nicole Martinez looks on the group show The body as a centerpiece, taking place in a community-driven art space in a gentrifying Miami neighborhood, exploring the relationship between the home and the self.

Her account of inclusion and diversity paints a different picture from the widely known image of Norway.
