Boy In A Room

When: Wednesdays-Sundays. Continues through Sept. 2 2018

The Edward Hopper House Museum & Study Center is pleased to present Boy in A Room, a site- specific installation by Claudia Alvarez. Renowned for her ceramic figures of children imbued with adult-like characteristics, Alvarez’s work engages such timeless subjects as immigration, violence, social isolation, youth and aging. Often situated in unexpected or ambiguous settings— forlorn and seeking reassurance in an empty room; armless and stranded on swings; or naked and fighting one another—these child-figures evoke the fearful and aggressive behaviors of the adults they mimic.
