‘Home Sweet Home: Shahrbanoo Hamzeh’ explores what happens behind closed doors

Contemporary Art Center of Peoria

On this week’s episode of Out and About, host Jenn Gordon talks with William Butler from the Contemporary Art Center of Peoria about their current exhibition ‘Home Sweet Home’ by Iranian artist Shahrbanoo Hamzeh.

Through melancholic but colorful paintings, Hamzeh explores what occurs behind closed doors and suggests that our bodies, domestic spaces and home countries function as three parallel homes on different levels. The exhibit is on display in the Preston Jackson Gallery at the Contemporary Art Center now thru February 19.
