_Families of Objects curated by Marco Antonini at Abrons Arts Center

This exhibition features works appropriating, documenting and elaborating on objects created under different circumstances and bearing a variety of meanings. Is a digital file an object? Do we really own something once it has been shared? How do objects reflect personal and collective histories, identity and trauma? How can they exemplify the labor relationships that contributed to their own creation or dissemination? Does a material artifact exist after it has been destroyed? Under what conditions does an “Object” become an “Art Object”? Throughout ___Families of Objects, these and other questions prompt a reflection on our own notions (and/or preconceptions) of art and objecthood.
