These storage units vary in size, price and accessibility but they all contain items that have been deemed valuable enough to keep but not valuable enough to remain in immediate possession.

    Through photographs and scale models, Gary Warren Hubbs (05) examines the ubiquitous quality of the self-storage unit.

    An essay by Judy Radul entitled Stage Fright: The Theatricality of Performance, was the inspiration for this exhibit bringing together ideas about sculpture and choreography. Featuring work by Geoffrey Farmer (92) and others, it incorporates a range of media: fabric, screen prints, video, and a work that transforms for the duration of the exhibit according to a musical score.
