Homes have a critical role in the invention of “separate spheres” (public vs. private). As Amy Kaplan explains, through the “cult of domesticity”, gender organized productivity and helped invent “homes” as the preeminent private space with a public function. After all, there is no nation without gender. But how is the visual and material culture of homes related to art? How has feminism changed the way we understand art? Is it still relevant to ask the question “why have there been no great women artists?” (Nochlin, 1971) This critical cultural immersion program is a double residency that includes critical perspectives on art, private tours to understand to contextualize the function of visual and material culture in privates spaces, and also allows the time to focus on your own artistic practice.
