Dime-Store Alchemy

Curated by Jonathan Rider

June 5 - August 17, 2018

The FLAG Art Foundation presents Dime-Store Alchemy, from June 5-August 17, 2018, on its 9th floor. The exhibition focuses on contemporary artists who elevate everyday, often taken for granted items through the framing device of cabinets, shelving, and containers. Working within the broader legacy of Joseph Cornell, these artworks, and the safeguarded objects and ideas they contain, address issues of identity, memory, value, and time.
