The House of the Seven Gables is inspired by Nathaniel Hawthorne's 1851 novel. Serving as a repository of memory and atonement, the titular mansion itself functions as a portrait of the family's collective trauma. This publication features 27 works by 22 contemporary artists who explore themes of haunting, portraiture and the architectural uncanny. In acknowledgement of its direct relationship to an existing book, The House of the Seven Gables' design references the layout of the first edition of Hawthorne's novel, and features essays by exhibition curator, Kendra Paitz, as well as Justine S. Murison, Christopher Atkins and Corinne May Botz. Artists include: Sue de Beer, Anne Collier, Dario Robleto, Anya Gallaccio, Katy Grannan, Rachel Khedoori, Jacco Olivier, Robert Overby and Gregor Schneider.
