Curated by Doris Cacoilo, acting director of NJCU galleries and _gaia director; Meredith Goncalves, Sharon De La Cruz, and Sarah Nelson Wright, This Must Be Home will feature eight works by eight artists from seven years of _gaia residencies that range in themes and mediums, encompassing notions of home, domesticity, belonging, and place. Among the artists whose work will be included in the exhibit are Lizette Louis, a 2009 NJCU alumna and the daughter of a single parent immigrant whose work pays homage to mothers of first-generation children and the language and cultural barriers they face when navigating the world; Alana Kakoyiannis whose three-minute looped video features the iconic kitchen brand pyrex to explore narratives of domesticity and women’s work within a compressed visual frame devoid of any contextual details; and Michelle Vitale Loughlin, who recycled scraps of shirts and sheets to create a quilt that illustrates foreclosures in her Jersey City neighborhood at the height of the housing crisis.
