About the exhibition:
The Rochester Art Center welcomes the Iraqi and American Reconciliation Project (IARP) to present a travelling exhibition exploring homemaking and memories in the portraits of Iraqi Minnesotans by Iraqi Minnesotan photographers Ahmed Alshaikhli and Jaafar Alnabi. Curated by CarryOn Homes (Peng Wu, Shun Jie Yong, Zoe Cinel), the exhibition will be held at the Rochester Art Center in the City View Gallery from May 19, 2021 to August 29, 2021. The portraits and stories featured in Home of Memories give us a complex and intimate portrayal of what home was, is, and what it can be. We invite visitors to reflect on the theme of home by bringing a photograph to be collectively displayed on a journey wall along with a shared memory.
