About the show

Step into a double self-portrait steeped with the iconography of the American Dream in Nick Vaughan and Jake Margolin’s panorama of visual and performative art, A Marriage: 1 (Suburbia). The husbands commandeer HERE’s physical space with a blend of performance art, video, sculpture, drawing, and sound, to create an immersive, building-wide mixed media installation that reveals the artists’ experiences of their same-sex marriage and expresses their deep ambivalence towards their new standing as a Normal American Couple.
