HOMECOMING: The Family Show

a black arrow pointing downward

HOMECOMING brings together a diverse collection of artworks that explore the essence of returning home and the emotional journey it entails. Coming back home typically refers to returning to the place where one feels a sense of belonging, comfort, and familiarity. To come back home can evoke a sense of reconnection, safety, and a return to a supportive environment. It is a place where individuals can be themselves, and find solace, even after being away for a period of time, it encompasses a sense of conversancy with that place.

The Family Show is a longstanding annual tradition within La MaMa. Friends and family of La MaMa are invited to submit one piece each. Every work is accepted and shown as a celebration of the community.
