Additional Information


Inspired by philosopher Gaston Bachelard’s concept of the psychological, emotional significance of rooms and houses, For a Dreamer of Houses presents contemporary artworks that evoke personal spaces and considers the politics of places we identify with.

The exhibition debuts major recent acquisitions—immersive installations by Alex Da Corte, Francisco Moreno, and Do Ho Suh, as well as large-scale works by Pipilotti Rist and Janine Antoni—along with a broad selection of works from the permanent collection.

$9 ticket for adults with discounts for seniors, students, and military. Free for DMA Members and children 11 and younger. Visitors must reserve a free general admission ticket in addition to this special exhibition ticket. You can also explore the virtual tour online at
