Welcome to the Dollhouse
Jan 20 - Apr 8
Welcome to the Dollhouse presents a selection of works from MOCA’s permanent collection that address, document, or deconstruct notions of domesticity. Moving through the “species of spaces” (to paraphrase French writer Georges Perec) one might find in a middle-class suburban home—yard, driveway, foyer, living room, kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom—the exhibition playfully examines a variety of approaches to the idea of the domestic found within the museum’s renowned collection. Spanning sculpture, photography, painting, video, and drawing from the 1960s to the present, Welcome to the Dollhouse includes works by artists for whom a dissolution of the boundaries between the fine arts and design is of central concern; works by artists engaged in a more documentary or photojournalistic approach to capturing domestic spaces and their maintenance; works by artists that veer increasingly toward the melancholic and romantic in their depictions of the interior spaces of the home; as well as works by artists engaged in strategies of appropriation.
