    to Exhibitions May 28 2015 to August 24 2015 Home Is Where You Hang Your Hat As part of the 100th anniversary of the PAA Home Is Where You Hang Your Hat is an exhibition that incorporates newly commissioned works by five Philadelphia based design build firms Austin Mergold ISA Moto Designshop Plumbob and Qb 3 to create five separate but interrelated installations based on the history of the Wetherill mansion as well as the contemporary concept of the house Each firm takes into account the ideological meanings associated with the history of domestic architecture the original function of the building as a residence and the physical features of the first and second floor galleries of the Art Alliance The resulting installations are not an historical recreation of the building as a private home but an interpretation of the concept of home as a reflection of both social anxieties and desires for a contemporary audience Ultimately the exhibition invites connections between design architecture and conceptual art practices bringing the usual assumptions of a design practice into the realm of installation art Support for Home Is Where You Hang Your Hat is provided by The Samuel S Fels Fund INTECH Construction
