Scholars discussed Elsewhere’s “things” in the context of contemporary art, new materialism, theories of assemblage, re-assemblage, and the problem of ephemerality on May 13th, 2017. The evening celebrated Elsewhere’s 15th birthday by thinking about the future of things for a thrift-store turned museum. The evening was a collaboration between Elsewhere, Dr. Bill Brown, and friends, and co-presented by Cabinet Magazine.


This event was free and open to all publics.
