Set Pieces restages objects and art works from the collections of the PMA. Curated by Katherine Stein Saches CW’69 and Keith L. Sachs W’67 Guest Curator Virgil Marti, a Philadelphia-based artist, the selection taps treasure from the museum’s storage. Reflecting the artist’s own immersive sculptural environments that cross art and decor, Marti draws especially on decorative arts and sculpture. The installation is informed by favorite films and those cinematic moments that highlight the unique capability of film to stitch together random incidents. The result is a series of tableaux of objects that might not meet up outside this unconventional display of art objects.
Free and open to the public.
