Life is but a Dream. That lyric from a ubiquitously famous children’s song takes on a deeper, and far more surreal, meaning when placed in reference to certain forms of contemporary art. For me, the experience of any kind of artwork is always more satisfying when it can facilitate transportation to an alternate reality or dreamlike state. Having taken possession of a massive, street level space in Chelsea, the 7eleven Gallery is currently hosting just such an experience; a group exhibit entitled Make Yourself at Home.
See Rooms Inspired By All of These Shows at Showtime House!
As a hardcore NYC-loving gal, I am always looking for fun weekend adventures to have here in the city. Today I am putting fans of Modern Interior Design and / or Showtime Television programming on notice: you only have two more weeks to see the mind-blowing awesomeness that is Showtime House, which Geoffrey and I spent a couple of hours exploring yesterday afternoon. For this years’ exhibit, two New York penthouses – located at the top of the luxurious Tribeca Summit Lofts building – have been transformed by a selection of renowned designers into thematic rooms inspired by Showtime’s 6 Original Series; Californication, Dexter, Nurse Jackie, The Tudors, United States of Tara and Weeds. The exhibit is a collaboration between the Showtime channel and Metropolitan Home, and features entirely different rooms than those found in last year’s Gramercy Park Showtime House. So even if you went last year, you will want to go again.
