Domestic Arrangement 2
Saturday November 19, 1994 – Saturday December 31, 1994
Domestic Arrangement, Andrea Blum’s first solo show in New York City, presented a group of works that used furniture to explore issues around the relationship between public and private space. Moving away from large public projects that have a direct sociological and/or historical relationship to the site, Blum focused instead on the investigation of site and audience on a more intimate scale, choosing to examine psycho-social behavior through the iconography of furniture. By addressing the social situations in which one is placed as a result of design (such as the “love seat” or “gossip chair”), Blum encouraged the viewer to examine the inherent complexities of design in public and private settings.
