With works by Helen O’Leary and Liliana Zavaleta

Gallery presents Shelter, featuring recent sculptures and works paper by Helen O’Leary and Liliana Zavaleta.

“Notions of cover, protection, practical constructions, safety, and pragmatic uses of spartan means are among the conceptual factors in Shelter, an exhibition of artworks by Helen O’Leary and Liliana Zavaleta. In their mixed media sculptures and works on paper, both artists broaden these basic concerns to address how and where we take shelter, seek shelter, find shelter; why we shelter things, ourselves, others; when we shelter from, shelter in, or shelter under. How does all this relate to personal history, belonging, memory, identity, and community? What is it about certain places or dwellings that allows us to call them ‘home’? If life leaves us not knowing where we’re truly ‘from’, or where we’d really call ‘home’, then what does it mean to feel pangs of homesickness? How might our essential experiences and concepts of shelter inform our views on politics, economics, and citizenship?”

— Paul D’Agostino
