outhouse/inhouse

outhouse/inhouse explored the idea of intimate experiences with art. The curators built 6 outhouses on the third floor of the New Arts Salon at 17 n. 2nd Street in Philadelphia. The outhouses were constructed of scrap wood that the curators collected. By using such material, they distinguished the show from the staid "white walls" of the typical gallery environment. Within these shelters 6 artist installed their artwork with the understanding that the viewing public would take more than a moment to comprehend and reflect upon the work presented.
