    One: Do Ho Suh
    One: Do Ho Suh features a single, large-scale work by artist Do Ho Suh, whose work engages with migration and cultural displacement. The Perfect Home II (2003), a recent acquisition in the Museum's collection of Contemporary Art, is a full-scale re-creation of Suh's former apartment in New York. Made with a translucent nylon material and carefully hand-sewn, the work questions the meaning of permanence, the process of finding a home, and how personal space comes to define an individual.
