Current Exhibition

We're Home Exhibition

The Pace University Art Gallery is pleased to present We’re Home, an exhibition which explores relationships within the domestic sphere featuring artists Destiny Belgrave, Katherine Hubbard, Steven Anthony Johnson II, Yung Oh Le Page, Pixy Liao and Margaret Zox Brown. The exhibit opens with a reception on Friday, June 7, 5:00 p.m.–7:00 p.m. and remains on view through Saturday, September 14.

The We’re Home exhibit navigates the gentler intricacies of human connection, capturing the essence of home through the lens of shared experiences and precious – though sometimes difficult – memories. As co-curator Kassandra Schengili ‘25 explains, "We’re Home encapsulates how we view home and create it.” Home is often thought of as simply the house or apartment in which we dwell, but home is more accurately the people who surround us and hold us dear. Home can be in the embrace of a lover, a waft of your caregiver’s perfume, or the sound of your child’s cry. The exhibit delves into the enduring ties that bind us together within the sanctuary of the homes we are born into and those we build for ourselves.

Schengili, along with Jordanna Naidoo ’26, received the Amelia A. Gould Undergraduate Research Assistant Award from Pace’s Center for Undergraduate Research Experience to work with Art Gallery Director Sarah Cunningham to develop the exhibition. Naidoo states, “This exhibit has been an interesting journey from the start. Being given creative leadership on this project has been inspiring.” Schengili continued, “Curating the exhibit allowed me to meditate on how relationships truly make a house a home.”
