Presenters Caroline Grey and Sharon Bautista give a talk inspired by the extraordinary glass lantern slide collection housed at Theaster Gates's Stony Island Arts Bank. Those of us who like to court in libraries are invited to learn more about Wunderkammer, or a cabinet of curiosities. Popular during the 17th century, these collections survive only in inventories, prints, and paintings. We’ll discuss the history, romance and assemblage of wonder. Tall cake to follow.
