Home: Shelter and Habitat in Contemporary Art, September 5 – November 17, 2013.
The Bedford has assembled a group of contemporary artists whose work investigates the role that home, habitat, and environment play in our modern lives. From the role of the interior in early modern genre painting to recent deconstructions of the home that have upended the way we think about the space we inhabit, this exhibition explores the natural and constructed spaces that we call home.
