Kubbe Makes an Art Museum
- by seeing, gathering, studying and exhibiting
July 18 (Sat) – October 4 (Sun), 2015
This exhibition is inspired by Kubbe Lager Museum, a picture book by Norwegian author/illustrator Åshild Kanstad Johnsen. With that story as a framework, it features artists whose works find expression in the actions of seeing and collecting, as well as collections that show the collector’s passion. As a participation-oriented exhibition, “Kubbe Makes an Art Museum” will let visitors experience the world of categorizing and exhibiting objects, and the fun of sharing that world with others.
