Something We Don’t Know (2016 - 2018)


In collaboration with San Diego Mesa College’s Sculpture and Museum Studies Program, Friends Collective (Lawrence Chit and Elizabeth Stringer), and the Museum of Contemporary Art.


A collaborative project commissioned by the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego through their Millennial Engagement initiative. The project turns to the museum’s collection to think about how the art object circulates within the relationships of artist, curator, registrar, and viewer as it shifts in meaning within the dynamics of those roles.
