Inspired by philosopher Gaston Bachelard's concept of the psychological, emotional significance of rooms and houses, For a Dreamer of Houses presents contemporary artworks that evoke personal spaces and considers the politics of places we identify with. The exhibition debuts major recent acquisitions-immersive installations by Alex Da Corte, Francisco Moreno, and Do Ho Suh, as well as large-scale works by Pipilotti Rist and Janine Antoni-along with a broad selection of works from the permanent collection.

Please note, this is a timed entry ticket. This ticket includes entry to the Special Exhibition For a Dreamer of Houses only for your selected date and time. You must have a matching General Admission ticket for the same time to enter the building. A special exhibition ticket alone will not permit entry to the DMA.

Please note that at 2:45 PM, all guests will be required to leave the building regardless of time of entry for building-wide cleaning. Please ensure you have secured your matching General Admission ticket and that you arrive on time.

Early and late entry will not be permitted under any circumstance. If you miss your assigned time slot, you must secure both another General Admission ticket to enter the building and another Special Exhibition ticket, possibly for another date and time. By reserving this ticket, you agree to abide by the Visitation Guidelines when visiting the DMA.
