From April 24 – July 14 IDEA Space will host a new collaborative exhibition by Professor of Art Carl Reed. This exhibit results from a narrative of unexpected relationships and circumstances. Thomas Claesson, who lives on an island off the west coast of Sweden, has assembled an enormous collection of “lost” objects – items that have washed up on shore, been abandoned or unearthed, or acquired through inheritance. When Claesson met Carl Reed, a sculptor who has worked for years with found objects, the two sensed the potential to realize an unusual collaborative project. The exhibition Lost and Found traces the dynamic of their collaborative process and explores ideas such as the urge to collect, layers of time, recycling, and the blurred distinction between art that is found and art that is made. Regular exhibition hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 12:30-7:00 p.m.
