About the Event
Virtual Art Exhibition, “HOME”, Reimagines the Idea of Home Through A Series of Lullabies from Mothers Around the World
In the midst of a global pandemic…
Beneath the clamor for social justice, behind the wall of political rhetoric seizing our country, quieter voices often go unheard. Voices we desperately need right now.
In the paradox of the pandemic, we are urged to stay distant—yet we yearn to be close. An inspiring online exhibition will help us bridge that chasm and feel more connected.
Each night, in every corner of the world, mothers sing their children to sleep. It is the safest sacred moment in the place called home.
The HOME. project, launching September 12th, is an interactive virtual experience with artworks constructed with the visual soundwaves of each song.
Created by Sasha Marie Speer, and in collaboration with Grammy-winning music producer, Steve Corn, HOME.: Lullabies from around the world presents 22 mothers around the world, singing the lullabies that soothed their children.
From India to Ireland. Saudi Arabia to South Korea. The Netherlands to the Navajo Nation. The music of our mothers crosses every border…
These works form the core of the 6-week exhibition. Throughout its duration, Sasha will also host a series of virtual events that examine the shifting meanings of home, family, and connection.
The project weaves together art, photographs, and audio along with interviews and roundtable discussions that transcend social distancing and political divisions—to reach back to our first memories of inspiration and connection to humanity.
There’s an infant part in our souls which longs for the lullaby truths of life every night for a tranquil slumber.
