The exhibition Andrea Zittel: Critical Space surveys a large selection of Zittel’s immersive and experimental domestic spaces, uniforms, installations, drawings and documentation, illuminating the comprehensive manner in which she addresses new methods of approaching life and work in a contemporary world.
Under the umbrella of A-Z Administrative Services -- first located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and now in Joshua Tree and Los Angeles -- Zittel researches, designs and constructs her own domestic settings and objects. Her work explores and questions such basic human needs as emancipation, intimacy, security and comfort, and presents her personal solutions to satisfy each of these needs. Over 75 of these objects, produced between 1991 and 2005, are on view at the New Museum, encouraging visitors to question the status quo and engage more thoroughly with their environments and each other.
