Exhibit up!

"Masterpieces of Everyday New York," composed of objects suggested, collected or lent by faculty from across the university, is up! Mine's not the most interesting but it's one of the most colorful, as this roundup noticed. "Masterpiece" and "everyday" are slippery terms but in their very slipperiness have allowed the subjectivities as well as the disciplinary slants of participants to emerge. Fun fun, full of surprises and intimations of secret knowledges, too. As much as a tour of the City it's an introduction to three score and some ways of making sense of telling its story, and one's own story within it.
