On display from May 27th through June 26th, we can examine how souvenirs are inherently contradictory. Though they evoke powerful memories for their owners, and may have high sentimental value, these objects are often cheaply and anonymously mass-produced in countries far from their point of sale. The artists in this exhibition share an intent to restore the maker’s biography to the souvenir, creating unique objects that reference both personal history and regional identity.

We may pour you a souvenir drink, feed you a souvenir snack, and offer you the opportunity to buy a souvenir.
