Megan Wilson, Home 1996 - 2008, The Influence and Use of Craft in Contemporary Art 
November 8, 2008 


DINNER SALONS

Home 1996 – 2008 was a site-specific installation/environment that utilized the interior space of Wilson’s home to explore and challenge notions of comfort and protection, private and public, and the boundaries between art/life/architecture/ design. The title is a bit of misnomer because Wilson began working on the project in 2004 (the dates reflect the years that she lived at the residence).

As Part of Home 1996-2008 Wilson hosted two dinner salons: The Influence and Use of Craft in Contemporary Art and Home and Stuff: Design, Production, Consumption, & Disposal
