In the Guestroom of Museum Het Domein in Sittard, the Netherlands, the guest exhibition space is taken over by a few prominent figures from the street art scene: Faile, Swoon and David Ellis from New York. Taking the streets into the museum, The Burning House leaves your heart with some burning questions. Where are we going from here? What will be left of us when the smoke clears?
The Burning House was first shown at the American New Image Art Gallery in Los Angeles, curated by Marsea Goldberg. For the Guestroom at Museum Het Domein, part of the Los Angeles show is brought to the Netherlands. The title of the show refers to the lyrics of songs by Jimi Hendrix and the Talking Heads.
