Now I Lay Me Down to Eat: A Salute to the Unknown Art of Living

On View: 
Tuesday, November 18, 1980 to Thursday, January 22, 1981

This exhibition is an exercise in observation, exploring attitudes toward everyday domestic manners by filling the museum with familiar objects relating to such subjects as bathing, sitting, sleeping, eating, and cleansing. Settings from The Last Supper to Buckminster Fuller’s Dymaxion bathroom are explored.

Organized by Bernard Rudofsky, the Museum's scholar-in-residence.
