March 10, 2016 at 5 Months Gallery in San Francisco.
From flying mice and “vegetable lambs” to treasures of the deep sea and exotic botanical specimens, the rarest of the rare and the strangest of the strange filled the original wunderkammers, cabinets of curiosities assembled as microcosms of the physical world. Join us for a discussion of these proto-museums which inspired generations of artists and scientists, and formed the basis of many great institutions and collections we know today.
Presented by Annetta Black, co-curator of Marvelous Strange and curator of Odd Salon.
General admission $12, advance tickets appreciated
