“No Place (Like Home)”

Walker Art Center
725 Vineland Place
March 9–June 8, 1997

Curated by Richard Flood

As national identities linger despite the pposed end of the nation-state and personal geographies grow more complexly placeless, the WALKER exhibits multimedia work, some commissioned for this show, by eight international rtists that reconsiders the notion of “home.” Organized by chief curator Richard Flood, with pieces ranging from Nick Deocampo’s grainy films and videos of abandoned army bases and ramped squats in the Philippines to Kay Hassan’s Technicolor found-poster ollages that equate the transience of the printed image and South Africa’s owing refugee population, “no place (like home)” reveals that we’re definitely of in Kansas anymore.
