Trapped in the Wunderkammer

On the occasion of Linda Geary’s recent book Studio Visit, which collects impressions from 100 in-studio conversations about art and life, Kadist invites a group of Bay Area artists to narrate an object from their personal collection. An unexpected result of her informal visits, Geary discovered many artists have collected images and objects unlike their public practice, raising questions like: Do personal collections change the way we think about an artists work? Do artists lead multiple lives as cultural thinkers? Are collections private secrets, as compared to publicly presented artworks? From Japanese Toys and Coffee-cup stirrers, to Eduard Manet Ephemera, and vintage family albums, artists eccentric collecting habits will be narrated and discussed.

Participating artists: David Huffman, Jordan Kantor, Rebeca Bollinger, Andrew Masullo, Jim Melchert, Emily Prince, and Margaret Tedesco.

Event at 5pm
