"Blind House" Opening Reception & Artist Conversation

Walter Martin / Paloma Muñoz / Amanda Krugliak
Thursday, March 14, 2019
6:00-8:00 PM
Institute for the Humanities Gallery & Osterman Common Room, #1022 202 S. Thayer Map
Join us to hear Walter Martin and Paloma Muñoz in conversation with curator Amanda Krugliak, followed by Q & A and Opening Reception.

"Blind House: Utopia and Dystopia in the Age of Radical Transparency," by collaborative artists Paloma Muñoz and Walter Martin, is a razor-sharp work that brings into question our ideals of house and home, privacy, and safety.

The exhibition combines photographs the artists have envisioned of houses without windows as well an actual glass house planned for the center of the gallery, revisiting the whole notion of a glass house as an example of sophistication, luxury, and modernism.

In a darkening an era of surveillance and the internet, for Martin and Muñoz, "Blind House" serves as "a metaphorical solution to the full on campaign against personal privacy."
