Questions about a woman’s “place” resonate in our culture, and conventional ideas about the house as a feminine space persist. This new exhibition forms a sequel to the famous project called “Womanhouse,” developed in 1972 by Judy Chicago and Miriam Schapiro.
Similar to their artistic foremothers in the 1970s, the global artists in Womenhouse recast conventional ideas about the home through provocative photographs, videos, sculptures, and room-like installations built with materials ranging from felt to rubber bands. With themes ranging from “Desperate Housewife” to “Dollhouse,” Womenhouse emphasizes the plurality of artists’ views on the home.
