Conjuring the interior of a private Gilded Age ballroom on one of Boston’s historic promenades, “Liz Glynn: Open House” transforms the west end of the Commonwealth Avenue mall into a tableau vivant furnished with cast reproductions of Louis XIV furniture and architectural arches. This hauntingly beautiful installation grants public access to what was once the domain of the elite, inviting us to address the evolving face of a city: who has access to space in a society that is increasingly divided along socio-economic lines?
