feels familiar

feels familiar begins at the intersection of place, belonging, pursuance, and becoming. Conceived by the first-year Curatorial Practice MFA cohort, this exhibition presents a diverse collection of work responding to the varied associations, implications, and cultural nuances of these themes. The invited artists – Clifford Prince King, Charles Mason III, Ju-Yuan Hong, Angelo Madsen Minax, and Ja’Tovia Gary – provide insight into their personal and collective ties to identity through reflections on home, intimacy, memory, and trauma. In a time of magnified alienation and introspection, feels familiar explores how the deeply familiar can unravel threads of both comfort and displacement, prompting viewers to reconsider their given pasts and envision a liberated future.
