Two twenty-something artists put their identity as “third-culture kids” at the heart of their collaborative exhibition of ceramics, woven textiles and mixed-media installations on view at Kranzberg Arts Center through May 15.

Both Kiki Salem and Saj Issa’s parents emigrated from the same village in the occupied West Bank, but it wasn’t until Salem’s family moved to St. Louis for her high school years that the two met and later shared an art class. Their friendship and collaboration has grown into exhibition “Back Home In Your New Home.”
