Homes We Make:
Resilience and Resistance in the Midwest
Through the language of quilting, weaving, and performance Charmaine (Charlie) Renee reflects on American identity, Nationalism, and creating a Midwest family.
Charlie is a midwestern femme, queer mom, and interdisciplinary artist whose work revolves around the intersection of a queer midwest identity with a focus on liberation through food justice and radical gardening. In their work, midwestern mothering and queer domesticity are translated into comfort constructions, quilts, everyday objects, as well as practical collaborations with local organizations.
