“While James Casebere‘s earlier bodies of work focused on American mythologies such as the genre of the western and suburban home, in the early 1990s, he turned his attention to institutional buildings. In more recent years, his subject matter focused on various institutional spaces and the relationship between social control, social structure, and the mythologies that surround particular institutions, as well as the broader implications of dominant systems such as commerce, labor, religion, and law.

In 2001, Sean Kelly Gallery presented an exhibition of Casebere’s works from 1999 to the present, including those inspired by the indigenous architecture of the Caribbean Island of Nevis, traditional Japanese architecture, and an imagined gallery space. This exhibition also featured a now well-known body of work inspired by Thomas Jefferson’s utopian Monticello. In the following years he has continued to investigate a wide range of iconic architectural spaces, resulting in increasingly sophisticated layers of interpretation. Two photographs from his most recent series, Landscape with Houses (Dutchess County, NY), were featured in the 2010 Whitney Biennial.”
