Current Nohl Fellow Update

April 4, 2012

2011 Established Nohl fellow Sonja Thomsen and collaborator Adam Carr are opening a new site-specific public art project this week called here, mothers are, in conjunction with the Dominican Center for Women and the Amani Neighborhood.

Thomsen and Carr describe here, mothers are:

"Over a period of three months, Thomsen and Carr conducted living room interviews with women and families connected to the Dominican Center for Women. Those intimate and varied experiences have been translated to mural photographs and text, which populate a pop-up gallery as well as the boards of a neighboring foreclosed home between 24th & 25th on Locust. The installation invites viewers to go beyond faces and facades, into family spaces within the surrounding neighborhood through visuals, text, and interactive audio. here, mothers are gives personal spaces a place in the public domain."

There is an opening reception this Saturday, April 7th, from 10 am-12 pm. Meet at the popup gallery across the street from the Dominican Center for Women, in between 24th Place and 25th on Locust Street.
