“House for the Inhabitant Who Refused to Participate” by Charlap Hyman & Herrero
Tina Kim Gallery New York
Curated by Charlap Hyman & Herrero, the title of this group exhibition refers to a project of the same name by John Hejduk. The noted architect created a stunning example of, in his own words, “the architecture of pessimism.” This sense of entrapment within the present moment flows throughout the works now on display, a cold rebuttal to early Modernists’s infatuation with the future and its many possibilities. Artwork by Hejduk is featured alongside that of Louise Bourgeois, Heidi Bucher, Sam Chermayeff, and more. “House for the Inhabitant Who Refused to Participate” is on view through January 21, 2023 at Tina Kim Gallery in New York.
