Not Exactly: Between home and where I find myself

Not Exactly is an exhibit at RedLine that speaks to the distinction between lack of shelter and the denial of social recognition that leads to an experience of homelessness. The exhibit is curated by Chad Kautzer and Robin Gallite. Denver Homeless Out Loud will provide workshops at the exhibit about the results of the survey on the impact of the “Urban Camping” Ban in conjunction with workshops by the homeless about homelessness.

Inocente is a participating artist and subject of the Academy Award Winner for Best Short Documentary Inocente.

Not Exactly runs from June 1 – July 28, 2013 at RedLine (2350 Arapahoe Street, Denver, CO 80205). RedLine is a diverse urban laboratory where art, education and community converge. Their vision is to foster forms of social practice in the arts that inspire inquiry and catalyze change.

Curator’s Statement

How resources are distributed, spaces ordered, and boundaries policed reflect particular values. Values are written into the brick and mortar of our communities and structure our institutions, creating varying levels of vulnerability and privilege. Where we find ourselves—housed, homeless, or incarcerated—is thus the result of more than the sum of our own actions.

Not Exactly explores the material conditions and social relations that help constitute “home” or foreclose the possibility of belonging, for being homeless is not exactly the same as being without shelter. The artists in this exhibition challenge the values that produce social marginalization and unsafe places for so many. Their work calls upon all of us to reimagine our communities and cultivate the possibilities for living otherwise.
