Adventures in Better Homes

Men’s adventure magazines appeared on the newsstand next to Better Homes and Gardens in the post-war years through the early 1960’s. The “true,” “real,” and “exotic” adventures peddled a heroic image of manhood, while Better Homes reflected a cool, ordered and insular domesticity. Nadine Boughton's photo-collages represent a collision of these two worlds; a deeper look at the ambiguities, fears and longings of the collective psyche; and the tensions between inside-outside spaces, wildness-domesticity.
