Dear Womanhouse, What Now?
Whole House Art Installation
Explore the female experience, societal ideas of gender roles and domesticity through this whole house art installation and performance collaboration. 26 southeast Michigan artists transform the Art Kettle and respond in kind to the iconic 1972 Womanhouse led by Judy Chicago + Miriam Schapiro.
The Model House Project: a lesson sequence to engage youth in a collaborative art making project that uses the concept of “house” as a metaphor for thinking about what it means to be a “woman” in the world today.
While students are using a model house to reveal what they think about what it means to be a woman today, local artists are doing the same thing on a much larger scale. In the real house, located in Manchester, MI, artists are transforming space to create a visible commentary on their perceptions of womanhood today. When they are finished, the entire house will be open to the public for viewing, along with the model houses Michigan students create.
