Wunderkammer: Artifacts, False Memories and Projections

Curated by Lisa Kinoshita
Foss Waterway Seaport, Tacoma, WA

Wednesday-Sunday through August 30, 2015

 

The Renaissance wunderkammer, or cabinet of curiosities, was a gallery of natural specimens, cultural artifacts, scientific instruments, anthropological objects, and unclassifiable oddities first collected by seafaring explorers for European royalty. Such collections, distant precursors to today’s museums, were compendiums of fascinating objects both real and fake. Whether genuine or not, the objects served to stimulate the spirit of inquiry and adventure in the human imagination. Inspired by the wunderkammer, this exhibition embeds select contemporary artworks with objects in the Seaport’s permanent collections, while presenting others in a gallery setting. Some of the region’s foremost artists in glass, video, ceramics, and mixed media present work to delight and confound viewers, and suggest a collection of curiosities for the digital age.

Westward Bound:

PUNCH Meets Clymer

Clymer Museum, Ellensburg, WA

July 3-31, 2015

Opening July 3 5-7pm

 

This July, artists from PUNCH gallery explore the west at the Clymer Museum. Founded by a group from Ellensburg, WA, this collective of artists comes from a wide range of aesthetic disciplines. While their mediums vary, they are all makers of contemporary art. Often, their work is conceptually driven and envelop-pushing. At times it can be ironic, silly and flip. The opportunity to show in a western art museum has provided an exciting launching-off point for this group exhibition. PUNCH members have taken on the task of reinterpreting the historical works of John Ford Clymer and his legacy as both an illustrator of idyllic lifestyles of yesteryear and as an iconic painter of the frontier west. PUNCH members reference Clymer’s works in both direct and oblique ways, and in doing so bring a new awareness and consideration to the talent and skill that was John Ford Clymer.
