Wonder Triptych

Renwick Gallery, Samuel P. Harn Museum, MASS MoCA | Sunday, Jun 26, 2016


For some reason recently, Weschler has become the one-stop go-to interlocutor for curators developing shows around the theme of Wonder (the subject of course of his 1995 book, Mr Wilson's Cabinet of Wonder, on the Museum of Jurassic Technology), 


1) Weschler's preface to the catalog for curator Nicholas Bell's "Wonder" group exhibition inaugurating the relaunch of the Smithsonian Institution's Renwick Gallery in Washington, DC.(November 2015-July 2016).
