This is an exhibition of 25 contemporary L.A. visual artists who participated in collaboration with Sistema Museo in the Umbria region of Italy. Artwork was selected or created by these artists to travel and be exhibited within the existing archeological fragments on view in the Archeological Museum of Amelia in summer 2009. Placing their artwork within these archeological remains provided artists with a unique opportunity to find a significant and unusual setting for their work and to interact with these important art historical sources. Rebus Reconstructuring documents the results of this process by displaying the selected artwork and photographic images of the artworks within the museum collections.
