San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
During this one-day Community Pop-Up Gallery inspired by the exhibition, Ellen Harvey: The Alien’s Guide to the Ruins of Washington, D.C., participants are invited to bring unusual antiques, peculiar family heirlooms, and curious collected objects from the past for a temporary display in the Corcoran’s North Atrium. During the event, participants and visitors discuss and examine the objects, share stories about what they were used for, and reflect on what the objects might tell us about society at the time.
