The Cabinet of Ordinary Affairs

The Cabinet of Ordinary Affairs

A multi­media installation by Stephanie Schlaifer and Cheryl Wassenaar

September 7, 2018 – September 22, 2018

The Cabinet of Ordinary Affairs is an immersive, site‐specific visual installation that explores the inner voices of the mind and their distinct, authoritative manner of telling us what to do. Merging sculpture, sound, video, text, and design, the installation is based on a series of Schlaifer’s poems that imagine the brain as a collection of governing bodies, operating as a bureaucratic institution.

opening reception: Friday, Sept 7, 2018 from 6-8pm

Artist Gallery Talk: Thursday, Sept. 20, 6:30 pm

gallery hours: Wedesday, Friday & Saturday from 1-6pm
