Populuxe was visual decadence applied to material objects. In this exhibition, two contemporary photographers reimagine the Populuxe vision. Sean Sullivan photographs classic cars, delineating them down to the most extraneous, yet eye-catching, details. Steven Duede photographs toy plastic houses stripped of their surroundings and hovering in space. His work evokes the disquieting idea that every house can be a home, but it can also be isolating and artificial, a feeling often applied to the postwar suburbs.
