Home: Shelter and Habitat in Contemporary Art

Robert Minervini, One Percent Efficiency, 2013, acrylic on canvas, 48” x 72”

The Schneider Museum is Pleased to Announce its Premier Exhibition for 2014 Home: Shelter and Habitat in Contemporary Art Showing January 10 – March 15 For most of us home is a personalized place of comfort, privacy, and security. Inside its walls we create spaces that reflect who we are and what is important to us. We also take refuge and respite from the rest of the world in these enclosures, believing in the safety that four walls and a roof can offer. In Home: Shelter and Habitat in Contemporary Art, 28 artists have deconstructed their meanings of home and assembled their concepts through photography, painting, sculpture, and video. The result is engaging art that invites us to rethink our notions about the places we live. To sculptors Sasha Petrenko and Gina Tuzzi, home is not a fixed unit, but a nomadic dwelling that can be brought with us wherever we go. Ari Salomon’s photographs provide intimate views of the interior of his great aunt’s apartment where she lived for 30 years. In contrast, Henry Wessel’s photographs are taken from a voyeur’s perspective. His haunting exterior shots leave us to imagine […]
