Arts &\; Sciences PROJECTS is pleased to present American Desire\, an exhibition of photo graphs by Brooklyn-based photographer Carl Gunhouse on vie w from January 10-23\, 2011.

\n

Gunhouse&rsquo\;s series explores the ironies behind the consumption-driven American dream. For decades\, America ns have felt secure and confident that their hard work and sacrifice would reward them with well-deserved comforts: a spacious\, nicely-appointed home in a safe\, suburban neighborhood\; roomy\, luxury cars and SUVs to help t hem transport all the material things they desire from the malls and super- stores to their great rooms\; and of course\, luxury goods including sleek\ , flat-screen TVs\, home exercise equipment\, and deluxe\, stainless steel\ , commercial-grade kitchen appliances.

\n

Gunhouse has traveled across the United States for the past five years creating a portrait of American desire and the dire consequences these yearnings have wrought: a struggling economy\, half-finished commercial construction projects\, abandoned subur ban cineplexes\, and foreclosed homes in never-completed subdivisions.

\ n

Originally from suburban New Jersey\, Gunhouse completed his undergradu ate studies in European History and Photography at Fordham University. He e arned an MA in American History at Fordham\, and later completed the MFA pr ogram in Photography at Yale University. Gunhouse currently teaches photogr aphy at Montclair State University.
