    Across the centuries, philosophers, poets, scientists, and mathematicians have meditated on the nature and power of beauty. Some have said beauty calls on us to educate ourselves; others have said it is a call to repair the injuries of the world.

    -Elaine Scarry

    This exhibit brings together artists from many disciplines who all share an interest in the notion of beauty, sometimes terrifying, sometimes in the face of the grotesque, often dreamlike; tapping into what lies beyond or beneath what is visible. Artists are conjurers, making evident and manifest what they see. The works range from paintings of surprising objects, to photographs which channel seventeenth century stillifes, to overwrought sculptural objects that are infused with baroque longing. Part of the exhibition also includes an interactive Camera Obscura space.

    “Memory and absence wind their way through the second part of Danforth Art’s two-part exhibition Found in Collection,” writes Jessica Roscio, curator for the Danforth Art Museum. “Imagined travel narratives, lost places, and remembered spaces are envisioned in photographs, paintings, and drawings from the late nineteenth century to today…… [and] is apparent in works throughout this exhibition,” she says. Roscio goes on to say that the works in Mirror “comment on the surreal aspects of one’s interior life, and its collision with an often fantastical and disturbing reality. In turbulent, uncertain times, the allure of an alternate reality, or simply the belief in illusion, appeals to our need for escapism.”
