Never Spoken Again Opening Reception
Join the MSU Broad and guest curator David Ayala-Alfonso in a celebration of Never Spoken Again: Rogue Stories of Science and Collections. This traveling exhibition reflects on the birth of modern collections, the institutions that sustain them, and their contingent origin stories. To do so, it brings together an international roster of artists whose works critically examine collected objects and the systems of distribution that facilitate their circulation.
Never Spoken Again: Rogue Stories of Science and Collections is a traveling exhibition curated by David Ayala-Alfonso and produced by Independent Curators International (ICI). It is the result of a new series of programs, pioneered with the support of the Hartfield Foundation, aimed at providing opportunities to alumni of ICI’s Curatorial Intensive as they move through the stages of their career, and reflecting ICI’s commitment to fostering and championing new curatorial voices who will shape the future of the field. Never Spoken Again is made possible with the generous support of ICI’s Board of Trustees and International Forum, with additional support from SAHA. Support for this project at the MSU Broad comes from the Eli and Edythe Broad endowed exhibitions fund. On view January 5 – August 23, 2020.
