Michelle Grabner’s survey exhibition, I Work From Home, features a replica of The Suburban, an artist project space Grabner and Brad Killam founded in 1998 in their backyard. Converted from an 8 x 8 foot storage shed and positioned in the suburbs—typically thought of as peaceful and humdrum—The Suburban offers an alternative platform for contemporary art outside of the typical hierarchies.
Through a commitment to challenging artists and work, The Suburban (which now includes an extension in their garage) has built up an impressive exhibition history and gained an international reputation. Over the years, it has hosted the work of over 200 artists, both emerging and established. Openings are held on Sunday afternoons and draw a good crowd of students, artists, and supporters, who converse, relax, and snack on homemade cookies and cold beers.
MOCA Cleveland’s full-scale replica of The Suburban will feature a series of installations programmed by Grabner. During the openings, Museum admission will be free from 2–5pm.
