What We Take is a contemporary art exhibition exploring how the things we take with us from one place to another both confirm and disrupt our understandings of home. Home is not only tied to the place where you are, but to the memories, experiences, relationships, habits, and objects you bring with you. We carry this “home” with us wherever we go: the things we can carry, the things we can’t leave behind, the things we have to leave behind, and the things we wished were left behind. What We Take brings together artists who are mediating their own experiences of dislocation. They use their artistic practices as means to process, respond to, document, and, at times, celebrate their displacement.
