One of two fall exhibitions opening at Blue Star Contemporary this week, “Home Bodies” approaches the intersection of artists’ work with family life. Featured works engage the perspectives of the parent, child, sibling and protector while examining the inherent bonds and conflicts within familial relationships. The exhibition is marked by a home-life aesthetic and the inclusion of textures and materials from the home – even stuffed animals! In addition to works by Ivonne Acero, Lenka Clayton, Catherine Colangelo, Karina Etcheverry Roberto, Casey Arguelles Gregory, Las Hermanas Iglesias, Hillerbrand+Magsamen, and Barry Stone, the opening reception will feature Courtney Kessel’s In Balance With, a collaborative performance work between the artist and her daughter Chloé.
