Art21 Set to Release New Film,
“Rose B. Simpson: ‘Dream House’”

New York, New York (Revised March 25, 2024) –  Art21 announces a change in the premiere date for “‘Rose B. Simpson: ‘Dream House’.” Originally scheduled for Wednesday, April 3rd, the premiere will now take place on Thursday, April 11th at 12:00pm ET. Please find below the updated details for the film and premiere.

Art21 is proud to announce the release of a new film: “Rose B. Simpson: ‘Dream House’” premiering Thursday, April 11th at 12:00pm ET on Art21.org and YouTube. The second 2024 release of Art21’s digital film series, Extended Play, “Rose B. Simpson: ‘Dream House,’” offers a look into Rose B. Simpson’s installation, Dream House (2022), at The Fabric Workshop and Museum.

Watch the trailer.

“You know when you have dreams that you’re in a house, it’s often the parts of your psyche,” says Rose B. Simpson in the film. “I would ask people to enter into the space with the kind of reverence that we would enter into our own psychological spaces. Even if that sensitivity isn’t a comfortable neuropathway, we can build one. This is how we start.”

In an immersive architectural installation, artist Rose B. Simpson allows viewers to walk through her dreams and explore the different rooms of her psyche. Through this documentary film, viewers are able to explore the many rooms of Dream House (2022) as the artist gives insight into what the installation means to her and how she hopes it might instill a greater sensitivity in those who experience it and initiate change in her own life.

“Despite having a treasure trove of footage from Rose’s segment in our ‘Everyday Icons’ episode, we felt compelled to document Dream House due to the new and unique insights it offered into Rose’s thinking and process,” says Andrea Chung, Director and Art21 Associate Producer. “Revisiting the footage shot over a year ago feels like reuniting with an old friend.”

Tune in to the premiere of “Rose B. Simpson: ‘Dream House’” on Thursday, April 11, 2024, at 12PM ET at Art21.org and on Art21’s YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/art21org. To learn more, email Art21 Manager of Communications, Hannah DeGarmo, at [email protected].
