By displaying work in a personal residence, the Jacqueline Falcone Bed & Breakfast questions the typical gallery model, blurring the line between public and private, the personal and the shared. I allow peers and their work into a personal space with the hope that they benefit from and are informed by its inherent intimacy. With a commitment to social interaction in art as a means of community growth and expression, the JFB&B looks for ways to explore this in different forms while focused on a subject that comes naturally to me-how does art and hospitality cross paths? An important part of the project is to create “home” and hospitality where it is lacking.
In addition to an exhibition space, the JFB&B performs as a somewhat-functional Bed & Breakfast where you may pay to spend one night in the exhibition, have breakfast, and check out.
