Curio


Cabinets of curiosities were seventeenth century collections of strange and unclassifiable objects that gave rise to a new view of the natural world as something that was endlessly transforming. Early scientists believed they could gain an understanding of how the world functioned by discovering invisible similarities from the arrangement of curios. In the tradition of the earliest museums, this exhibition presents eight artists whose work celebrates wonder and curiosity while still keeping the shifting manipulation of the natural world in mind.
