The Permanent Collection Show?

March  15 - March 24, 2021

‘The Permanent Collection Show?’ plays with history. It is an online narrative that presents a fictionalized rendition of the history of the Hatch Art Gallery - and the accompanying AMS Permanent Collection - through re-enactment, engagement, satire, game, and jest. In curating this project, we began to understand that there are as many histories as there are art historians. Presented to you is one way to view these histories that have been constructed by a multitude of voices, perspectives, personal accounts, and grave assumptions.
