The home is not only where the heart is, but also a site for politics and the imagination. While the news floods with coverage of foreclosures, vacancies, homelessness, and property values, entertainment media celebrates real estate shenanigans and home renovations. This exhibition includes work of contemporary artists grappling with the physical and psychological implications of “home.”
