The exhibition showcases a selection of architectural objects depicting animals—both real and mythological—as decorative elements. As ornament on municipal buildings and monuments, churches and warehouses, animals have appeared on structures and statues across time, geography, and function. Imagined as a cabinet of curiosities, Animals, Collected presents two- and three-dimensional materials that encourage closer inspection of the buildings we see every day.
Art Omi: Architecture opens the exhibition InConstruction: Peter Eisenman with a reception on Saturday, February 15 from 2 - 4 pm. The exhibition will be on view in the Kantor Lobby in the Benenson Center at Art Omi February 15 - March 15, 2020.
