We are thrilled to present two solo exhibitions that explore the formal and psychological mythology of Home Alone’s suburban identity at the geographic and cultural gateway between Hollywood and the San Fernando valley.

Chelsea Pegram has created site-specific architectural interventions that interact with the existing structure of the domestic site, while also drawing attention to the decorative impulse through arranged remnants of intimate activities. Peter Hoffman’s oil painting portraits, modeled after headshots, capture the idealism and contradiction of the Hollywood dream machine. Rendered in seemingly effortless strokes and nuanced hues, Hoffman’s push and pull of descriptive and disruptive marks summon both the artifice and humanity of their subjects through an empathetic eye.
