DESCRIPTION

Curio is an exhibition of artists’ collections. In collections, mundane objects take on new meaning as personal inventories; as personal inventories, the collections featured in Curio embody traces of the artists’ worlds and the symbolic value they apply to these fragments. As a group, these artists present a contemporary series of explorations into the unmonumental, the stuff that we collect, the sentiments we ascribe to our collections, and the rituals that surround the act of collecting. -Amira Shabason
