Where does your mind journey to get home? In this immersive multi-room installation, New Mexico-based artist Rose B. Simpson leads us around the contours of intimacy and memory with windows into her own domestic narrative, kinship, and subconscious. Inspired by Pueblo architecture, her ancestral landscape, and magical realism, Simpson explores the imprints and through-lines that connect and orient her life as an artist, an Indigenous person, and a mother.
Dream House invites us to contemplate notions of home and nourishment—safety and emotional comfort, the work of mental and spiritual growth, as well as abundance and fullness—through unique displays of ceramics, textiles, sculptures, paintings, and Simpson’s first-ever works in video, all created in collaboration with the FWM Studio team specifically for this exhibition.
Now through April 16, explore the Process Lab for Rose B. Simpson’s residency, which documents material experiments like plaster tests, weaving, and screenprinting that led to the making of Dream House. Family friendly activities include making/painting a paper pulp bowl, collaging textures of your own dream house, and painting your own symbol on our wall to represent your idea of home.
