At Home 

When: Jan. 1-27 2012

Housing, broadly interpreted, is the subject of a group show at Asian Resource Gallery, curated by Jackie Im, featuring members of San Francisco's activist Kearny Street Workshop. You can go home again, after all, without regressing. Chris E. Vargas explores identity and spectacle in his video stills about Liberace/liberation ("Liberaceon"). Minette Mangahas ("A Home of My Own"), Rie Hirai ("HOME"), and Claire Kessler-Bradner ("Domestic Recall") explore female identity as defined by and identified with domestic space, from the perspectives of Asian-American and European-American immigrants. Nancy Chan examines in her drawings the unconscious theater of sleeping couples ("Annie & Michael") and the conscious restraint of singletons "pretending to sleep." Finally, Kija Lucas makes digital photos of brooms and pillows that are mounted like specimens or trophies, and of the tousled topography of unmade beds. At Home runs through January 27 at Asian Resource Gallery (310 8th St., Oakland). 510-287-5353 or EBALDC.org/pg/21/asian-resource-gallery
