If you, like us, have fantasized about living in Barbie's coveted Dreamhouse since you were a kid who demanded one for Christmas, now is finally your chance - to pose in it, at least. Not only will a snap at Friedman Benda's new Blow Up exhibition make a great edition to your grid, it'll also earn you some major art snob cachet. Two birds, one very fabulous #OOTD op.
Curated by Felix Burrichter, the founder and editor of design mag PIN-UP, the surreal installation is a self-described "Freudian trip," bringing the uncanny aspects of a dollhouse to life(size).
With the help of design firm Charlap Hyman & Herrero, Burrichter has transformed the Chelsea gallery space into a re-escalated novelty home, complete with a bedroom, dining room, kitchen, study, and nursery to explore. Combining seminal designs from the 1970s and '80s, along with objets and furniture by a range of contemporary designers and architects, Blow Up provides a chic (and slightly disorienting) take on interior aesthetics. Needless to say, it's Insta-worthy AF. Click through for a peek!
Blow Up is on view at Friedman Benda in New York through February 16, 2019
