Stories of Art and Shelter

This unique and engagingly written book reveals how some of today's most exciting artists are reimagining the idea of home for our unsettled times. In his evocative style, Justin Paton investigates a place we all have a stake in—from houses of memory to upturned houses, from haunted houses to light houses, from intimate spaces of shelter to optimistic future communities. Richly illustrated, Dreamhome brings together artworks by twenty-six artists from around the world, as well as diverse contextual imagery that includes family photographs, film stills, architectural drawings, and historical records.
