[...] Adam Charlap Hyman of the buzzworthy creative design firm Charlap Hyman & Herrero was tapped by Tina Kim for the gallery’s latest endeavor. Named after the revolutionary writer, Mario Praz, whose cataloguing of objects in his own home lead to a groundbreaking spatial autobiography, “The House of Life” (1964), the show brings together works by such art and design talent as Louise Bourgeois, Katie Stout,  Milano Chow and Candida Höfer and Gala Porras Kim to explore the fleeting nature of a home and the memories created from the objets within. Each room is swathed in white cotton muslin, a fabric associated with moving and packing, conjuring an austere, yet nostalgic ambiance. “Tina approached me about curating the show after she saw a show I had curated for Nina Johnson Gallery in Miami,” says Charlap Hyman. “We have an ongoing friendship and very special working relationship as she was my first client.”
