Exhibitionson view October 1, 2017 to April 22, 2018

Immerse yourself in Anissa Mack’s imaginative re-envisioning of The Fair, a project first realized in 1996 when she entered all seventy-three craft categories at Connecticut’s Durham Fair; engage in a conversation with Alex Schweder and Ward Shelley while they occupy their twenty-three foot high architectural environment; and view an international collection of photographs made over the past thirty years that considers the world’s social, economic, and political climate since the fall of the Berlin Wall. Take an expert-led exhibition tour and participate in art-making activities for all ages!
