Square Footage

Solo Exhibition

Washington, DC



By examining site-specificity, intervention, and infiltration, Beauchene produced three works of art specifically for his solo exhibition, Square Footage.

Two works, 2400 Virginia Ave NW Apt. C1010 and Open House: $1,350,000, from Beauchene's exhibition were selected to be a part of ACADEMY. This exhibition was the 14th annual invitational survey hosted by Connersmtih Contemporary of outstanding work by MFA/BFA students in the Washington/Baltimore area.


The projected video displays an infiltration of a 1.35 million dollar home in Washington, D.C. during an open house hosted by the realtor.  Beauchene occupied the open house for three hours while it was open to the public. Exercising, shaving, and napping are just a few actions that Beauchene executed during this short span of time while this private residence was temporarily transformed into a public space.

Open House: $1,350,000 earned Beauchene a First-Place Award at The Annual Juried Art Show at The George Washington University, Washington D.C.
