      Andrea Zittel: Small Liberties

      on view February 9, 2006-May 7, 2006
      Whitney Museum of American Art at Altria
      Andrea Zittel’s “systems for living” explore the friction between the
      prescriptive nature of externally enforced rules and the liberating
      potential of internally imposed parameters. Her current project, A–Z
      West, is a culmination of ten years of creating these experimental
      domestic and external structures. The community, sited in the desert
      environment of Joshua Tree, California, was conceived as a
      sustainable space within yet separate from our increasingly regulated
      culture. This exhibition presents several Wagon Stations—small mobile
      units customized by invited individuals—from the settlement.
      Transplanted to an urban landscape, they reveal at once the
      individuality of their creators and the simple clarity of the system
      as a whole. The exhibition runs concurrently with the New Museum’s
      mid-career retrospective of Zittel’s work.
