Symposium: Modern/Contemporary Art and the Curiosity Cabinet, February 5th, 2011, 10:00AM
Working in Wonder” includes artwork in various media by artists that have been inspired by the Curiosity Cabinet, a historical era of collecting occurring between 1500 and 1700. The exhibit explores the connection between man-made and natural objects or artificialia and naturalia.
Excerpt from exhibition catalogue:
"David K.Thompson forms analagous comparisons in Compendium: Ceci n'est pas une Coquille, which expose the farcical nature of truth and fact. Like Osti and Perrin, Thompson works subversively , with 'official language' to convey his message."
