For the month of October, 2008, A Gathering of the Tribes will present At Home an exhibition featuring work by three Brooklyn-based artists: Amy Lincoln, Christina Medina, and Helena Wurzel. The exhibition explores themes of domestic life through paintings, drawings, video installation, photographs, and collage. The work depicts the artists' relationships with their living environments as well as with those who share their space, whether they be roommates, partners, or pets. Interacting in close quarters, these modern urban families are created either by attachment or necessity of high New York City rents. In counterpoint to scenes of couples or groups, each artist also explores moments of solitary contemplation within a domestic environment, more often than not, in the bathroom.
