About House Beautiful
Set in a 1956 ranch style home on a cul-de-sac in the San Gabriel Valley, House Beautiful operated as both a celebration and critique of suburban culture in America. Paintings, photographs, films and site-specific installations were presented alongside home solutions, imagining a contemporary art collection within a middle-class suburban home. Themes of class, consumerism, domesticity, nostalgia, design, and the future of dwelling were addressed within the intimacy of a home constructed during a time of optimism and prosperity in America.
