This display of work from Tate’s collection links the institutional space of the museum to the familiar interior of the home. The works on display allude to the central role of domestic space in our lives and its representation as a subject matter for artists.

Artists featured includeIvor Abrahams;Naum Gabo, Sherrie Levine, Susan Hiller, Nan Goldin, Patrick Caulfield and Gabriel Orozco among others who disrupt and reconfigure the habits and habitats that surround them by exploring themes of the domestic in a gallery setting. The collection was curated as part of the 8th Liverpool Biennial Exhibition, A Needle Walks into a Haystack, which presented artists who disrupt and reconfigure the habits and habitats that surround them by exploring themes of the domestic in a gallery setting.
