Cecilia Paredes: Not At Home

October 25, 2023–June 2, 2024
1912 Gallery, Special Collections, Bryn Mawr College
1st floor of Canaday Library

Opening Reception: Wednesday, October 25, 6 pm
Event parking at Merion Hall and Radnor Hall. See campus map.

Not ~ At Home features the work of Peruvian-born, Philadelphia-based artist Cecilia Paredes, who explores issues of domesticity, gender, and diaspora through her practice of photography, performance, and bodily coverage via painting and textile. Viewed here in conversation with ceramic, feather, and fabric objects from Peru in special collections, Paredes’s work also prompts questions of restitution and repatriation – where home is and might be for these artifacts.

Curated by Emily Alesandrini (HART Ph.D. student) with curatorial contributions from Dr. Carrie Robbins and programming and exhibition assistance from Joselyn Garcia (HART MA student).

No ~ En Casa presenta el trabajo de la artista nacida en Perú y radicada en Filadelfia, Cecilia Paredes, quien explora temas de domesticidad, género y diáspora a través de su práctica de fotografía, actuación y cobertura corporal a través de la pintura y el textil. Visto aquí en conversación con objetos de cerámica, plumas y telas de Perú en colecciones especiales, el trabajo de Paredes también plantea preguntas sobre restitución y repatriación: dónde está y podría estar el hogar de estos artefactos.
