February 10 – March 16, 2018
Curated by Evonne M. Davis
Opening Reception February 10th 7-10pm @ Gallery Aferro
Case Studies is a unique group exhibition in which artists have been invited to intervene with re-purposed, salvaged museum display cases. The majority of these cases were donated to Gallery Aferro by the George Washington Mt. Vernon Estate Museum, as well as from the New York Historical Society and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Large, elegant, dark wood displays, previously used for a traveling exhibition of objects from George Washington’s life, as well as plexiglass vitrines and pedestals, will be transformed by artists for a contemporary vision. Artists from across the East Coast will be participating, creating a diverse and unique experience for the viewers. This exhibition will create a dialogue between museum culture, gallery experimentation, and the artist’s voice.
