ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
A multi-sensory installation, Shary Boyle: Outside the Palace of Me explores how we see ourselves and each other through drawings, ceramic sculpture, life-sized automatons, two-way mirrors, coin-operated sculpture, and an interactive score.
Reimagining the museum as a collective performance space, Canadian visual artist and performer Shary Boyle mines histories of craft and obsolete technologies to connect our current realities to legacies of the past. Reversing the frame on her uncanny characters and their destabilized audience, she urges viewers to think critically about how we create both ourselves and the world we inhabit. Learn more
