The Memorial Art Gallery continues to celebrate its centennial with the new exhibit, "The Memory Theatre," opening Wednesday, October 9. The exhibit examines the ways in which memory functions in the structuring of personal and cultural identities while also taking a look at the role of the museum as a repository for memory — a "memory theater." A museum exhibit that examines the museum, you say? So meta.
The exhibit will feature work by Barton Benes, David Maisel, Will Barnet, and others, and will run through December 29 in the MAG's Grand Gallery. There is also a member's opening party on Sunday, October 6, which will feature a lecture by Judith G. Levy, the creator of the exhibit's "memory cloud" installation. Admission is the standard entrance fee for the MAG ($5-$12). The museum is located at 500 University Ave. For more information visit mag.rochester.edu.
