Housed, Joseph Maida’s curatorial debut at the Alice Austen House Museum, grew out of an ongoing dialog with fellow artists, whose work explores various approaches to investigating domesticity. The artists in this exhibition (Catherine Opie, Peter Garfield, Christopher Miner, and Victoria Sambunaris, among others) favor analytic, microscopic, and topographic points of view over literal depictions of the domestic stage and its accompanying narratives. Their work describes, analyzes, and re-imagines the American home at the end of the 20th and beginning of the 21st centuries. This exhibition was accompanied by a critical essay by Susan Bright entitled A Guided Tour.
