The Dada Movement is celebrated in an exhibition currently taking place in Lisbon. Museu Coleção Berard is hosting “No Place Like Home,” which features some notable artists like Andy Warhol. The exhibition runs until June 3, 2018.

The show celebrates 102 Years of Dada Movement from Marcel Duchamp to Andy Warhol to Yayoi Kusama. The installation explores the domestic in modern contemporary art with artworks inspired by everyday household objects. The exhibition examines how artists from the past century have changed common household items in their work, removing them from the domestic scene in ways that subvert everyday experiences. Artists featured in the show include Marcel Duchamp, Man Ray, Claes Oldenburg, and Yayoi Kusama amongst others. The installation consists of a home-like setting in order to trigger new thoughts and perspectives on the familiar.

“No Place Like Home” brings together more than 100 art objects, drawn from the Israel Museum’s own collections, together with works from the Museu Coleção Berardo, generous loans from the Ellipse Collection, as well as artworks from private collections, galleries, and artists worldwide. The show has been designed in the form of a series of rooms that suggest traditional domestic interior with galleries designated as rooms are in a household. Through this layout, the exhibition creates an experience of home that is at once familiar and disorienting. This it achieves through the placement, proportion, and hybridization of objects that encourage the viewers to take a second look at the objects both as works of art and as functional items.

“No Place Like Home” runs through June 3, 2018 at Museu Coleção Berard, Praça do Império, 1449-003 Lisboa, Portugal.
