For a dreamer of houses, an imaginative and immersive exhibition. It explores the meaning of the spaces we inhabit and how they represent themselves. Our values and our desires.

Who examine the psychological importance of houses. The main recent acquisitions, in particular the works of Alex Da Corte. Olivia Erlanger. EJ Hill. Francisco Moreno.
