Part of My Past
Objects as IdentityOctober 4, 2013 - October 4, 2013
Curated by Adjunct Curator of Decorative Arts Patricia Kidd | Founders Gallery
Using artifacts drawn from more than 30 Victoria homes and collections, this exhibit will be equal parts object and story. Everything from rare maps, to an extraordinary painting or two, a Rococo mirror, a mask by Richard Hunt and a giant mosquito from Zimbabwe – all of these share one principal characteristic: they speak volumes about their past, and that of their present owners.
This is an exhibit about memory – the memory many of us embed in objects. It has been designed to promote dialogue between you and your children, between the objects and perfect strangers, between like-minded collectors and people who have never thought of objects this way before.
