No Place Like Home

September 18 – December 5, 2015

Featuring contemporary works from the impressive collection of Sue and John Wieland, No Place Like Home is an examination of the diverse rituals that define a dwelling, the physical representation of the house, and the universal desire to frame home as the cosmic center.

No Place Like Home: Selections from the Sue and John Wieland Collection of Contemporary Art inspects the artistic representation of the house, examines the diversity of elements that define a dwelling, and explores the universal desire to frame home as the center of our lives.
The home, both as structure and interior space, has been represented and examined in art history for thousands of years, from Roman illusionistic paintings of grand interiors to domestic rooms in Northern Renaissance painting. Since the mid-20th century, contemporary artists have often explored the motif of the home in an examination of social, political, economic, personal, and ideological discourse.
The exhibition is organized into six sections: the house as an architectural glyph; the home as the cosmic center of the universe; the neighborhood in suburbia; the complexities of the American dream; the home in tragic ruin; and, the home as a framework for the inner psychological world.
No Place Like Home features an extensive selection of paintings, sculptures, photographs, mixed-media pieces and films by contemporary artists including Roy Lichtenstein, Cindy Sherman, Ai Weiwei, Rachel Whiteread, Ed Ruscha, Martha Rosler, Hubbard / Birchler, and Wolfgang Laib.

The works of art in this exhibition have been generously loaned by Sue and John Wieland, owners and founders of the world-class wareHOUSE collection of contemporary art. Additional support was provided by long-time MOA supporters Curtis and Ann Atkisson.
