February 26 @ 11:00 am - August 29 @ 5:00 pm
Future Retrieval, the studio collaboration of Cincinnati-based artists Katie Parker and Guy Michael Davis, appropriates imagery and forms from historical objects to create new art that bears meaning in our twenty-first century world. Their practice is rooted in ceramic art, but also incorporates a diverse mix of media and techniques combine age-old methods with new technologies. This exhibition will take over two museum galleries as project spaces that look back at the past and move into the future by unconventionally responding to objects “borrow” from the museum’s decorative art and design collection. In pairing their own work with objects from the museum’s collection, the artists will create an environment and experience that encourage visitors to consider of reconsider aspects of the museum’s historical collections and practices in a new light.
