Art in the Home: Materiality and the Power of Symbolic Space

Sat, August 12, 4:30 to 5:30pm, Palais des congrès de Montréal, Floor: Level 5, 520A

Abstract

The concepts of "taste" and "choice" guide much sociological thinking about the art people display in their living spaces. Drawing on interviews within people's homes, I problematize the usefulness of these concepts by suggesting how strongly material constraints and symbolic definitions of the "home" constrain what can be displayed.
