This publication was a joint project of the Contemporary Art Gallery, The Southern Alberta Art Gallery and Kamloops Art Gallery to accompany the touring exhibition Dream Home by Renée Van Halm. The publication includes the essay How To Colour by The Office for Soft Architecture and an essay by Sherry McKay.
Dream Home consisted of a suite of small paintings and a pair of constructed architectural models based on images and plans taken from Vancouver real estate advertisements. The models depict the interiors of two residences, one the largest, the other the smallest, which were on the market on a given day last year. Van Halm’s gouache paintings illustrated the exteriors of a number of other houses for recent sale.MORE
