We Lived Here
Brooklyn, New York, 2017
Staged in the Brooklyn apartment that housed the first White Toy Box exhibition, We Lived Here presents a series of work in which artists reflected on ideas of place, nostalgia and both building and returning to a home. This exhibition was shown one night before the apartment needed to be vacated and marked five years of occupancy, heartbreak, hangovers and bed bug scares among the other things that the spaces we inhabit contain. Making use of the empty space, the artists explored what it means to live somewhere temporarily, through video, works on paper, sculpture and performance.
Presenting works from Mary Anderson, Joseph Anderson, Alexandra Baye, Caleigh Birrell, Rabha Ashry, Evan Harden, Hadar Kaly, Cherry Kim, Molly Lambe, Simone Leitner, Maya Misra, Nora Normile, Rhodes Sabangan, Alexander Sellers, Julie Stopper, Peter Valenti and William Wheeler.
