Sue and John Wieland's the wareHOUSE
Admission to this event is free, however, you MUST have attended a Home Is Where the Art Is event prior to March 28, 2017. Please RSVP to our Executive Director, Veronica Kessenich.
The wareHOUSE is a 20,000 sq. ft space that houses the private collection of Sue and John Wieland.
The artwork is based on the theme of the house as a central image and includes contemporary artists from around the world who work in painting, photography, sculpture, installation and video.
Highlights include pieces by Vito Acconci, Doug Aitkin, John Baldessari, Jennifer Bartlett, Robert Bechtle, Hans op de Beeck, Louise Bourgeois, Gregory Crewdson, Olafur Eliasson, Mitch Epstein, Katharina Fritsch, Robert Gober, David Goldblatt, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Alex Katz, Wolfgang Laib, Ed Ruscha, Joel Shapiro, Joel Sternfeld, Ai Weiwei, and Rachel Whiteread.
Located on the Westside neighborhood of Atlanta, the collection is only open to the public by appointment.
Sue and John Wieland began collecting art in the mid-1980s. A short while later, they decided to focus their purchases on art that features a house, a reflection of John’s business as a homebuilder in the Southeast. Their earlier acquisitions concentrated on artists working in the United States. In 2005, when Rebecca Dimling Cochran joined them as curator, their collecting expanded to include both national and international artists. For many years, the art hung in the corporate offices of John Wieland Homes and Neighborhoods. In 2010, the Wielands created the wareHOUSE, where the majority of the artwork now resides.
Guests will receive an email with address and parking details on the morning of the event.
