Room Situation documents a performance entitled Room Piece that was staged over three weekends in January 1970. Each weekend, Acconci moved furniture and objects from his New York apartment to a gallery eighty blocks uptown. If he needed any of these items, he would return to the gallery to borrow them, and take them back when he had finished using them. The distinction between the artist''s home and his gallery, and between his private and public activities, became increasingly blurred.
