Stuckeman Jury Space

Dream the Combine’s work consists of large-scale public art installations exploring metaphor, perceptual uncertainties, and the boundary between real and illusory space. 

The firm was the winner of the 2018 Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) PS1 Young Architects Program for its “Hide & Seek” installation.

In addition to exhibitions at MoMA and MoMA PS1 in New York City, Dream’s work has been exhibited at the Dia Art Foundation in Minnesota, Franconia Sculpture Park in New York, and in Vancouver, East Haddam (Connecticut), and the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota.

The firm’s work has been published widely by The New York Times, Log, Metropolis Magazine, Architect, Architectural Record, The Architects Newspaper, and Dezeen. The firm’s latest installation is “Lure,” which was recently on view at MadArt Studio in Seattle.

Jennifer Newsom is a registered architect, artist, and co-founder (with Tom Carruthers) of Dream the Combine, based in Minneapolis. She is an assistant professor at the University of Minnesota School of Architecture.
