Exhibiting: DIY at Home

This month's Art Forum reports that artists focussed on generating community involvement rather than profit are showcasing work in nontraditional spaces, including their homes. US artists Eve Fowler and Lucas Michael set up Artist Curated Projects to curate shows both by and for artists. They hold monthly exhibitions in the kitchen and living room of Fowler’s West Hollywood apartment. With a similar DIY ethos, Eli Langer’s Sundays Gallery, located in a Hollywood office building, is used as an ad hoc living space and has a painting by Michael Rashkow embedded face-first in the kitchen wall.

Has anyone had any experiences of doing this? Tell us how it worked out for you.
