This is the second time Theresa Harrison curates a group exhibit in a house. This time, the house was going to be demolished. I thought it was such a clever idea to have the freedom (and the permission) to turn a vacant house into a gallery where walls, floors, and furniture are partly destructed and/or modified to be part of a final project. There were several artists who each used a room or a section of hallway to display their art. There were drawings, sculptures, video, paintings, and photography. Anything that could be possibly be done to the house was explored! I liked the idea of reconstructing space to create. It is an original way of recycling a building. It is easy to get distracted by the idea of creating something new where you can easily modify an already existing idea or object by adding to it something more personal. Unfortunately, the exhibit was on for only 1 day.
