Eternal Return

Presented By: Richmond Art Gallery


Eternal Return, guest curated by Sunshine Frère presents new works by artists: Barb Choit, Kevin Day, Lucien Durey, Alanna Ho and Anchi Lin. Each artist has selected artifacts from the Museum's Migration Collection and developed works in direct dialogue with this eclectic array of historical objects. The products of this dialogue span a diverse range of media including performance, video, photography, sound, and sculpture. Artworks and the artifacts that inspired them will be on display in the gallery, allowing visitors to uncover their polymorphous histories. The title, Eternal Return is a concept that appears in philosophy, science-fiction, ancient history, and contemporary culture. It refers to the cyclical repetition of all things and situations throughout time. From the prestige an everyday item acquires when it becomes part of recorded history, to the surreal aura of a new or unknown artifact, this exhibition pays homage to the object and its power to invoke many returns.
