Tabletop objects on display

The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum is mounting “The Domestic Plane: New Perspectives on Tabletop Art Objects,” a meta-group exhibition in five chapters—organized by five curators, including more than 70 artists, that will feature tabletop art objects from the 20th and 21st centuries. The experience could be likened to theater, as viewers will encounter objects that interact with each other, their audience and their setting. The Domestic Plane will be on view at The Aldrich in Ridgefield from May 20, to Jan. 13, 2019.

In addition, noted graphic novelist, illustrator and animator, Richard McGuire, will be contributing an eight-page project to the exhibition publication consisting of sequential grids of 128 small-line drawings depicting the interrelationship of a cast of small objects. 

Funding for the exhibit is provided by Crozier Fine Arts and the Art Dealers Association of America Foundation. Funding for the exhibition publication is provided by the Elizabeth Firestone Graham Foundation and Philip and Shelley Fox Aarons.
