Sixty weak knees

November 20 - January 16, 2005

Lounge! An Intersection of Art & Design....
featuring: sixty weak knees, an installation by Matthew Geller

Organized by Arthouse Adjunct Curator, Regine Basha and Kevin S. Alter, Associate Dean, School of Architecture, The University of Texas at Austin.

Arthouse selected New York-based artist Matthew Geller's proposal titled sixty weak knees as the design for Lounge! after conducting a nationwide request to architects, designers and artists asking them to conceive of a temporary, multipurpose lounge for Arthouse's empty 3,000 square foot gallery space.

Lounge! functioned as a temporary forum for programs and discussions regarding the blurring of art, architecture and design in modern and contemporary culture. One could visit Lounge! to relax and enjoy our reading area of seminal books on architecture and design, view weekly film screenings, listen to a curated audio program and attend informal discussions and workshops.


Arthouse is now the Jones Center at The Contemporary Austin
