Oliver Croy / Group XVII, Oct 03 - Mar 04
"3 FIREPLACES AND 2 BATHTUBS" AND "IT’S TIME TO STAY HOME AND GET SOME AUDIENCE"
3/12/04 to 3/17/04
MAK Center for Art and Architecture L.A at the Schindler House, 835 North Kings Road, West Hollywood, CA and MAK Center at the Mackey Apartments, 1137 - 1141 South Cochran Avenue, Los Angeles, CA
Beginning with 3 Fireplaces and 2 Bathtubs, an exhibition at the Schindler House, and ending with It’s Time to Stay Home and Get Some Audience, an exhibition at the Mackey apartment building, the residents presented works that teased out the implicit contradictions of viewing art in domestic spaces (private collections) and public spaces (museum and gallery exhibitions).
Oliver Croy constructed a large collage/painting of real estate ads for "hot properties" and fabricated similarly-themed wall paper for the Mackey garages.
