Description

CURRENT EXHIBITIONS:

TREASURES IN THE ATTIC

Until March 17 2019

Everyone is invited to pop over to see the grandparents of twins William and Sara, as the attic of their house has a collection of toys from 1890 to today.

Filled with forgotten treasures, this attic has become a repository of memories of all the families who have lived in the house. Piles of boxes hold a rich and fascinating world where childhood is frozen in time and that have become the final resting place for GI Joe, Barbie, Mr. Potato Head, rocking horses, toboggans, stuffed animals, board games, old dolls, toy soldiers, furniture, books and photographs.

MARISA PORTOLESE : In the Studio with Notman
Until February 10, 2019

For a number of years, Portolese has been making portraits of women from a feminist perspective. As a participant in the artist-in-residence program, she has sought to explore the studio tradition and its decors, paying particular attention to the backdrops and accessories used by Notman in photographing female subjects.

CURRENT INSTALLATIONS :

SHADOWS WITHOUT BORDERS

Until January 6, 2019

The participatory installation Shadows without Borders asks visitors to discover and reflect on exile, what binds our identity, and the strength of our connection to that irreplaceable place called “home.”

As you travel through this shadow world with lamps, discover pieces created during workshops in refugee communities in Greece and Turkey alongside work made by the artists. Playing with shadow and light, you are invited to highlight an object, a moment or a place, or cast them into darkness.
