> DESCRIPTION

For the collaborative project between Art in General, M.S. 131, and Adam Simon’s Fine Art Adoption Network, Educator Christine Hou led 20 curatorial studies workshops with a class of twelve Seventh and Eighth-grade Special Education students. The resulting exhibition examines the act of collecting in relationship to contemporary art practices. Departing from the idea that collecting functions as just a physical practice, Impermanent Collections features artists who explore how collections move beyond mere acquisition of objects and into a continuous process of building and making.
