Negotiating Authenticity: Reproducing the Past for the Present

April 24, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


Negotiating Authenticity: Reproducing the Past for the Present explores how reproductions connect us to the past. From Rembrandt restrikes to plastic souvenirs, reproductions occupy an important chapter in an object’s biography. This exhibition explores the complex relationships between ‘original’ artifacts and their reproductions. It considers how this ongoing dialogue blurs the boundaries between materiality and authenticity and, in the process, manifests in our desire to build bridges between the past and the present.

Opening reception with curator gallery talk is on Thursday, April 13, from 5 to 7 pm. Curated by David Symanzik-Stock.
The exhibit remains open through May 11, 2023, Mondays through Thursdays from 10 am to 4 pm. Free and open to the public.
