    Established in 2005 by Anna Ruth (1993-96) and Juho Jappinen, House Games is a thematic art triennial that focuses on themes of home, family and house. For one week, a private apartment home in central Finland will also serve as a public exhibition space. This year's artists focus on a basic, if not primary aspect of the home: the living ephemeral experience of life (in no specific order): death, birth, play, decaying/aging, collecting and remembering. This year five lumen prints by Phyllis Schwartz (10) will be shown in House Games 2011.

    For more information, please visit House Games or visit the blog.
