In "The House Imaginary," the house is a lens through which artists explore memory, identity, and belonging in an increasingly itinerant world. The house can be a lightning rod in which social policies around immigration, homelessness, urban planning, race, and gender intersect with personal histories and fictions.
"The House Imaginary" will comprise approximately forty-five sculptures, paintings, films, photographs, and works on paper, including objects drawn from SJMA’s permanent collection as well as key loans. The exhibition will include work by An Te Liu, Bill Owens, Carmen Argote, Carmen Lomas Garza, Larry Sultan Maxime Rossi, Mildred Howard, Mike Kelly, Rachel Whiteread, Salomon Huerta, Tabaimo, Todd Hido, Won Ju Lim, Zarina, and others.
"The House Imaginary" is organized by Lauren Schell Dickens, curator, San José Museum of Art.
