  • ATHICA: Athens Institute for Contemporary Art is delighted to present, Relative: Photographing Domesticity, curated and organized by ATHICA Board Vice President, Edwyna Arey with co-curator Michael Marshall, Assistant Professor of Photography at the Lamar Dodd School of Art, The University of Georgia. The exhibit features a wide range of photography-based works broadly interpreting the concept of domestic relations—a fraught field of inquiry in this election season! With the camera as a tool, the seventeen artists in the Relative exhibition reflect upon experiences in and around home life—from the gaze of a parent to the quirkiness of domestic dynamics, they bring their personal experiences to us with striking transparency. In keeping with the field of contemporary photography generally, some of the works are barely contained within the medium's boundaries, incorporating mixed media, installation, sound and video. And while some artists in Relative work in a documentary style, capturing the moment-by-moment details of home life, others capture a domestic sensibility in found remnants. They hail from as far as Oakland, CA and Chicago, IL, with many being regional and several local to Athens. Excitingly varied and rich, the exhibition includes several invited artists, with the majority chosen from the 42 responses to ATHICA's open call for submissions.
