"No Place Like Home" at The Israel Museum, Jerusalem, Israel.

On view February 25 through July 29, 2017.


In "No Place Like Home," the Israel Museum’s galleries are transformed into a domestic interior displaying artworks inspired by everyday household objects, inviting the visitor to reflect on the representation of the domestic realm in modern and contemporary art. In celebration of Dada’s 100th anniversary in 2016 and the centennial of Duchamp’s Fountain in 2017, the exhibition examines how artists have incorporated commonplace household items into their work, removing them from the context of the home in ways that subvert the mundane experiences of daily life. Featuring works by artists including Marcel Duchamp, Man Ray, Claes Oldenburg, Andy Warhol, Martha Rosler, Louise Bourgeois, Mona Hatoum, and Ilit Azoulay, the exhibition reexamines the concepts negotiated in the domestic sphere, including gender roles, memory, nostalgia, and questions of place and displacement.
