Four Houses, Some Buildings, and Other Spaces

“Four Houses, Some Buildings and Other Spaces” opens January 29, 6-8 pm

“Four Houses, Some Buildings and Other Spaces,” organized by AICA-USA member Berta Sichel, will be on view at 80 WSE January 29 – March 16.  The exhibition explores the bonds between architecture and history, delving into the complex relationship between ruins, memories, and the social and cultural implications of place.

The 10 artists in the exhibition—European, North American, and Latin American—revisit the history of monuments, houses, municipal buildings – sites that were once hallmarks or centers of production but have become forgotten or abandoned areas within contemporary landscapes. For these artists, revisiting buildings that once held a special significance challenges both the imagination and the interpretation of memory.

Headquartered in New York, AICA-USA's membership comprises over 400 critics, curators, scholars, and art historians working throughout the United States.
