Happy Homemakers: The Pleasures and Perils of Domestic Life
March 22 - April 27, 2014
517 Stieren, San Antonio, TX 78210
Home, with its familiar relationships and rituals, is always our anchor. It is what keeps us grounded or drags us down. This exhibition uses painting, photography, sculpture, video, and performance to re-domesticate the galleries of Sala Diaz, a former duplex apartment. Six Houston artists, Melanie Crader, Francesca Fuchs, Rachel Hecker, Mick Johnson, Jim Nolan, and Jenny Schlief, along with the Chicago-based collaborative of Dutes Miller and Stan Shellabarger, explore themes and forms from indoor living. Guest Curator: Toby Kamps of The Menil Collection.
