Home Extension curated by Sabine Russ and Gregory Volk features works by ten international artists who respond to the theme of 'home' as a place of refuge, memory, support, occasional conflict, love, and connection. Through their work, an understanding of 'home" shifts from a physical place to a psychological space that is movable, transportable, and complex. The artists are Sebaastian Bremer, Beth Campbell, Fred Holland, Kimsooja, Joachim Koester, Odili Donald Odita, Ragna Róbertsdóttir, Karin Sander, Ward Shelley, and Roman Signer.

Sabine Russ is a German writer and curator. Gregory Volk is a Brooklyn-based art critic and independent curator. He writes for Art in America and is a Visiting Professor at the University at Albany, SUNY.

In Home Extension, Russ and Volk bring together ten artists whose work relates in specific and idiosyncratic ways to the University Art Museum's, Edward Durell Stone-designed space. Avoiding narrative, all of the works in Home Extension focus on how the transformative possibilities inherent in one element, such as color, light, pattern, or texture can elicit an instantaneous sense of catharsis.
