The exhibition will be touring to Falmouth at the beginning of September.
Once an object is placed in a museum cabinet, it is elevated to a higher status. It tells us stories, paints portraits, voices opinions. A group of contemporary artists will take objects from their lives and practices and display them in vitrines. The objects, salvaged from workshops, handbags, cloak rooms etc. will be used by the artists to create their own personalised museums in cabinets of curiosities.
