The series began with the exhibition Home and Garden (2004, curated by Wendy Watriss and Jennifer Ward), and continued with the exhibitions Native Sons (2006, curators Jennifer Ward and Vinod Hopson); Viewfinder (2009, curators Arturo Palacios and Risa Puleo); Nowhere Near Here (2011, curators Toby Kamps and Michelle White); and Moving/Still (2013, curator Kerry Inman).
