Object Lessons // KWAG


Object Lessons // Curated by Beatriz Asfora

March 17, 2018 to August 19, 2018

“Over the course of several years I have come to find that there is something quite magical about turning the pages of a document that were once typed and conserved by the original owners decades or centuries ago, unpacking a fragile oil painting, or even standing a few feet from works of art hanging in a gallery or museum. I have found that the objects that live in museums often carry with them a life of their own. Inspired by one of the more unusual objects in KWAG’s Permanent Collection – an easel once owned by Homer Watson –  the works selected for this exhibition reflect on the Gallery’s history of collecting, object histories, and parallel efforts undertaken by contemporary artists.”
