About the Exhibition

In her immersive exhibition USC Roski School of Art and Design’s Macomber Travel Grant recipient, Domia Edwards, employs photography, video, family archives, and sculptural installation to take us on a journey to her mother's hometown of Ardmore, Oklahoma.  I Got A Home in That Rock: Journey to Salvation uses this town as a source to remake the white cube into a domestic and spiritual space, collapsing the exterior and interior spaces of private and public life exposing the internality of a Black American experience, where family relations, identity, and spirituality always intersect with issues of race, politics, and class.  This is a Macomber Travel Grant exhibition.
