Do Ho Suh: Almost Home

This Week
Daily, Now - August 5, 2018
From: 11:30 AM to 07:00 PM

Do Ho Suh’s immersive, dreamlike work explores the nature and meaning of home, fastening ties between personal space and shared experience. Encountering his large-scale fabric sculptures is both deeply familiar and profoundly alien as the ordinary details of everyday life dissolve into ethereality.

Do Ho Suh: Almost Home will feature a major installation of the artist’s brightly hued Hub sculptures along with a group of semi-transparent replicas of household objects called Specimens. Suh’s Hubs—finely rendered representations of thresholds and other transitional spaces from the various places he has lived—are inspired by his own history of migration. 

Almost Home will transform SAAM’s galleries into an immersive passageway of conjoined rooms that visitors can experience from the inside. This presentation will be the most comprehensive of Do Ho Suh’s work ever shown on the East Coast.
