Home/ is the inaugural exhibition of the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) at UTC, and highlights artmaking in our city that celebrates a sense of community and awareness to place. The exhibition expands ideas of “home” through 12 artists with a direct connection to Chattanooga, with artwork made between 1995-2020 and ranging from drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture and video.

The circumstances and challenges of the prior year called into question how one defines, documents, and reinforces a unique sense of place—relationally, socially, geographically, and politically: from the rapid physical shrinking of direct social circles due to quarantine and “stay at home” orders, to creating new online communities through digital tools, to monitoring our impact on and reconsidering relationships with our region’s land, and by recalling domestic spaces—both imagined and real—as places for creative abandon and protection.

The artists in Home/ approach these realities from their individual viewpoints unique to our city and region: topics range from the most personal and intimate first-hand experiences, to more universal questions addressing our innate human desires for connection, mobility, mark-making, and representation.

Marc Boyson’s Chattanooga kickabouts:

Exhibiting artist Marc Boyson will embark on local kickabouts starting and ending at UTC’s Fine Arts Center on Tuesday and Thursdays from 10-11am during the run of Home/. Watch Boyson live on his Instagram @marcboyson or follow him in person by meeting at the gallery before he departs. Upon his return to the gallery, Boyson will place the traveled cuboctahedron sculpture in the exhibition.
