The Art Gallery of the College of Staten Island presents Playthings and Performing Objects from Thursday, Apr. 4 through Saturday, May 11 in the Center for the Arts (Building 1P), Room 112.

Opening and Artist Talk: Thursday, Apr. 4 from 5:00pm to 7:00pm.

This group exhibition explores how objects and images can be constituted to dramatize and resist our current political culture. It features works that revel in the theatricality of the art gallery itself and showcase how objects and images are themselves performative, inviting audiences to respond through action. The exhibit includes works by Zoe Beloff, Camel Collective, Great Small Works, Maryam Jafri, and Thiago Szmrecsányi with Tracy Collins.

Playthings and Performing Objects is curated by Professors Edward D. Miller and Valerie Tevere, with assistance from Brooke Christensen. The exhibition is made possible, in part, by additional support from the Dean of the Humanities and Social Sciences, Sarolta Takács.

The Artist Talk is funded, in part, by the Campus Activities Board, made possible by Student Activity Fees.
