Event Description

Curated by Sharon L. Butler. 
 
The story goes that a child, sitting on his mother’s lap, wished that future generations would be able to see her beautiful eyes. He touched her eyes, then waved his hand over the ground, and blue flowers appeared—what we now call “forget-me-nots.”

The pieces selected for this exhibition, like the forget-me-nots in the story, bring forward ideas, memories, and images gleaned from the artists’ pasts.  The triggers for the work on display include a childhood love of old-fashioned books, an uncle’s story about a young boy playing with a revolver, the innocence of Victorian-era silhouettes, a generation of dealers in the New York art world, traditional African textile patterns, and paintings made by a young girl’s father. Each artist transforms transient thoughts and vague private recollections, allowing them a place in our shared memory and collective history.
