Looking Local is comprised of 11 artists, photographers,
and writers who are united because their creative practice
has a connection to a specific place. For some participants,
it is the place they currently call home that informs their
work. For others, home remains a distant place,
somewhere in the inaccessible past or unknowable future.
The inability to return to a place (personally or collectively)
is the theme of several works; as are reactions to memory,
nostalgia, and dislocation.
