The Alice Austen House Museum is pleased to announce its 2010 summer exhibition, HOUSED. This group show marks the curatorial debut of artists Katie Murray and Joseph Maida.
HOUSED draws from Murray’s and Maida’s ongoing dialog with fellow photographers and video artists who explore fresh approaches to the subject matter of home. The individuals included in this exhibition are successors to a generation of American artists whose photographs interpret social, cultural, and political events through the restaging of personal occurrences in suburban living rooms and backyards. While this previous generation depicts the literal stage and accompanying narratives of domestic life, the artists in Housed present a more analytical approach to the American home. HOUSED contextualizes the works of thirteen living artists by exhibiting them, alongside the work of Victorian-era photographer Alice Austen, in Austen’s historic home on Staten Island.
HOUSED includes Kathryn Parker Almanas, Alice Austen, David Deutsch, Matt Ducklo, Benjamin Donaldson, Kyle Ganson, Peter Garfield, Christopher Miner, Catherine Opie, Abby Robinson, Victoria Sambunaris, Peter Stanglmayr, Penelope Umbrico, and Jessica Watson.
This exhibition is accompanied by a critical essay, “A Guided Tour,” written by Susan Bright and made possible by the generous support of Dear Dave Magazine.
Katie Murray and Joseph Maida met as graduate students at Yale School of Art in 1999 and are on the faculty, along with Susan Bright, at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. Katie Murray is also on the faculty of Hunter College In New York City.
For further information about HOUSED, or to obtain writing or images, please contact the Alice Austen House Museum Curator, Paul Moakley, by telephone at (718) 816-4506 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
