Susan Silton: Inside Out

Pasadena Museum of California Art

"Susan Silton: Inside Out" enveloped the entire Museum, modeled after fumigation tents commonly seen in the Los Angeles landscape. As exterior indicators of an infestation spreading beneath and the presumed remedy for containing it, striped fumigation tents allude to one of the stripe’s alleged historical functions as a marker for otherness, and by wrapping the building, the artist signaled her intent to infiltrate—structurally as well as metaphorically—the edifice contained within.

Based on Silton’s interest in the evolution and meanings of stripes, "Inside Out" included what was the PMCA’s first site-specific installation...

Silton wrapped the entire 30,000 SF of the Museum building in a tent, similar to a common fumigation tent.
