Red All Over

We know what the inside of Swedish houses look like. We got the Ikea a few years ago and have made enough trips—actual and through that fabulous catalog—to know the perfectly organized reality of Scandinavian nesting. Clean lines, children's creative areas, inviting color and tasty, lingonberry-sauced meatballs. Right? Right. But of the outsides, those of us without a Swedish passport stamp know not as much. Saturday through March 22, Joakim Eneroth educates us through photographs of the iconic Swedish red house (with a repetition that is sometimes disturbing in its comparison to our tract homes) in his first solo exhibition this side of the Atlantic, Comfortably Secure. See it at Photographs Do Not Bend Gallery, 1202 Dragon St. Call 214-969-1852 or visit
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: Feb. 16. Continues through March 22, 2008
