Real Estate: Dwelling in Contemporary Art

Exhibition Website

Sep 15 2017 - Mar 18 2018

Real Estate: Dwelling in Contemporary Art presents the work of contemporary artists working with or responding to the varying aspects of real estate vernacular—buildings, rooms, structures, monuments, properties and houses. From the monumental to ubiquitous building, the ordinary, or derelict piece of property to the historic site, architectural details or the room itself, the artists presented in Real Estate consider an array of norms that fall under the much broader term of “architecture”. With a rich history of artworks as the exhibition’s inspiration—for example Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s “Wrapped Reichstag”, Charles Simonds’ miniature cities, Eugène Atget’s photographs of Paris, Trisha Brown’s “building walks” or Marcel Duchamp’s “16 Miles of String”—Real Estate will display a constellation of artworks, including sculptures, photographs, paintings, films and videos from the 1960s to today.
