American Dream Room 2018

Last month I had work included in The American Dream Room 2018, a modern, immersive, and experiential spin on the white-wall gallery experience. Artist Pia Sawhney, featured artist and show creative director, did a wonderful job with the event and I’m honored to have had my work included. (my works are the art objects: china dishes with pharmaceuticals, Bible and New Testament stash books, and a few other art objects shown below) 

The American Dream, Room 2018 is American hyperrealist artist Pia Sawhney’s latest solo project and first installation. The temporary exhibit translates Pia’s playful yet dark art on 2D surfaces into filling 3D spaces, bringing the viewer into a world that is a mirror of American life with a caustic twist. It is a modern, immersive, and experiential spin on the white-wall gallery experience.

Viewers walk into the American  dream home—complete with picket fence and freshly mowed lawn—but upon closer look, they find a disruptive subtext. Guests explore each wall/room within The American Dream, Room 2018 and uncover Pia’s dystopian view of contemporary life in the United States. With immersive artwork throughout, the viewer steps  into the truly ironic and dreamlike world of Sawhney’s creation. —Source
