AmericaJR’s Jason Rzucidlo recently visited the University Of Michigan’s Institute for Humanities to check out their new exhibit called Mary Mattingly’s “Objects Unveiled: Boxing, Rolling, Stretching and Cutting.” During her residency, Mattingly travelled to the Upper Peninsula, exploring its terrain and cobalt mines. She thrifted for glassware and other goods, visited trash sites, met with metal workers, and airplane mechanics. The exhibition includes photographs and objects, many are transformed through boxing, bundling, rolling, cutting, stretching, and crushing; all techniques used to alter Cobalt.
View the exhibit at the U-M Institute for the Humanities Gallery (202 S. Thayer St., Ann Arbor) from Nov. 9 until Dec. 15, 2016. Gallery hours are Mon.–Fri., 9 a.m.–5 p.m.
