Snaps From My Home: Online Exhibition
July 17, 2020 – August 21, 2020
New online exhibition: Snaps From My Home, curated by Stacey Evans and Kristen Chiacchia
In 1990, with the help of his first digital camera, artist David Hockney produced 2 series of photographs, 112 LA Visitors (a year-long project recording visitors to his home) and 40 Snaps of My House. Hockney’s 40 Snaps of My House provided an intimate look inside the life the artist created for himself inside his Hollywood Hills home. Produced with a still video camera and color copies in August of 1990, the series of 40 snapshots is included in prestigious collections around the world such as the Tate Museum in London and the Cottrell- Lovett Collection.
This spring, we announced an open call for artists to create their own version of Hockey’s 40 Snaps of My House.
During the past 2+ months of the current COVID-19 crisis, many of us have been forced to self quarantine in our own homes. This has resulted in re-examining our own spaces and perhaps viewing our surroundings in a whole new way. For most of us who have been in our homes for many consecutive days, these rooms are familiar to us, but the circumstances are new. Snaps From My Home features a selection of photo grids, as well as statements from each artist about their relationship to home.
The exhibition went live on Friday, July 17, at 5pm.
