The Home Stage

Jessica Todd Harper

Friday, March 13 - 9:00AM to 9:45AM
Celestin D

The Home Stage is a body of work about childhood and having children. The title references the home-bound lifestyle of families with small children as well as the idea that home is the stage on which children first learn to live. In his foreword to the accompanying monograph published by Damiani in the fall 2014, Alain de Botton writes, "Harper recognizes the worth of a modest moment and marshalls her genius to bring its qualities to our notice. Her astonishing, beautiful and quietly stunning images proudly contradict our prejudices by foregrounding all that we are likely to have missed."
