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’s series explores the ironies behind the consumption-driven American dream. For decades\, Americans 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 s afe\, suburban neighborhood\; roomy\, luxury cars and SUVs to help them tra nsport 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\, comme rcial-grade kitchen appliances.

\n

Gunhouse has traveled across the Un ited States for the past five years creating a portrait of American desire and the dire consequences these yearnings have wrought: a struggling econom y\, half-finished commercial construction projects\, abandoned suburban cin eplexes\, and foreclosed homes in never-completed subdivisions.

\n

Ori ginally from suburban New Jersey\, Gunhouse completed his undergraduate stu dies in European History and Photography at Fordham University. He earned a n MA in American History at Fordham\, and later completed the MFA program i n Photography at Yale University. Gunhouse currently teaches photography at Montclair State University.
