Interior/Exterior presents structures, “rooms” and objects, which are neither fully interior nor fully exterior. Exposing the permeability between these two categories, this exhibition interprets public and private spaces. Looking beyond the neat closure of four walls, Interior/Exterior will feature site-specific installations, temporary structures and sculptures by Julie AlpertBenjamin Armas and Ori CarinoMacon ReedKathy Sirico, and Kaori Yamashita.

This exhibition attempts to position structures and shelters as permeable, active bodies. Though the exterior facade of the built environment seems immovable and solid by design, the walls are laced with flows of energy both in and out. Looking at these frontages as porous skins, we can start to see the anatomy of structures and objects (and the bodies that inhabit and use them) more fully. Within the seemingly solid walls that define a built structure’s boundaries are pipelines for utilities, the foundational connection between our private and public lives. Interior/Exterior positions structures and objects of the home not just as containers, but as active shapers of our social space.
