Amherst College’s CHI Fellows and Mead Art Museum Collaborate on a Virtual Exhibition that Explores our Ideas of Home
(Amherst, Mass., May 3, 2021) — Hidden Drives: The Scene and Unseen of Home is a collaboration between the Mead Art Museum and five fellows in residence at Amherst College’s Center for Humanistic Inquiry (CHI). Over the past year, the CHI Fellows focused on different aspects of how artwork in the Mead’s extensive collection related to the CHI’s theme of home—how our perceptions and experiences of home are controlled by forces that might be invisible to some while intensely felt by others.
The Hidden Drives exhibit launched in March, and CHI Fellows will be in residence at Amherst through June 2021. Each year the CHI welcomes a cohort of fellows to Amherst to teach and conduct research relevant to a timely theme.
