Catalog 1: February 5, 2014

On Feb. 5, 2014, friends, colleagues, and some new acquaintances met at the Gallery Cabaret to show their objects and tell their stories. The more we thought about it, the more we started to see our event as a special kind of exhibit; the objects were only “exhibited” for a few minutes each, and each person who spoke during the event was a curator for the time they told their story.

Presented here is the virtual catalog of the objects exhibited. This was the inaugural event in what we hope will become a long, perhaps endless series which will give each of us a sense of community and life beyond the grave (because we will obviously haunt these events, since we could not bear to miss out on any great stories or objects that you lovely people will inevitably bring).
