DMA curator Dr. Anna Katherine Brodbeck will talk with three artists featured in the new exhibition For a Dreamer of Houses. Hear from Olivia Erlanger, EJ Hill, and Francisco Moreno on how their work relates to concepts of space, home, and belonging. Presenting a selection of artworks drawn from the DMA's permanent collection, the exhibition considers the ways in which artists articulate and reimagine home and how the house is a metaphor for the relationship between ourselves and the external world.
