Public Interiority

January 17 – February 18, 2023

]This exhibition prompts designers and artists to address the intersections between experience-based interiority and the city. Exhibited works include representations of atmospheres, politics, architectural forms, experiences, and psychologies that help us see outside places as if they were inside places. This idea of the public interior expands interiority beyond the simple enclosure and asserts an equal claim on urbanity and the commons. The exhibit explores human-scaled, adaptable, and phenomenologically-driven spaces.

The Ewing Gallery will resume normal operating hours on Monday, January 23. From January 17 – 23, the gallery will be open M-F from 10am – 5pm.
