March 15–June 16, 2013
Curator: Terry Wilfong
This exhibition featured the multimedia work of two Master of Fine Arts students from the University of Michigan School of Art & Design and Museum Studies Program. The artists explord themes of collection, museological display, and material culture in the context of an archaeological museum. Displayed together, the two artists’ work created a dynamic dialog between dystopian and utopian views of the relationships people form with objects. Romberger investigated assemblages of items as a response to apocalyptic fear, while Wessler examined the role of collection in dream and memory.
