20/20 Exhibition

Sue Amendolara invited 20 respected friends and colleagues based on the diversity of their personal aesthetics to join her in a collaborative project. Each partner received a cast sterling silver shape and the directive to finish the collaboration in whatever way they chose. This exhibition is the result of that experiment and is a collection of artworks that, not surprisingly, differ greatly in style, shape, and scale.

20/20 was organized by Sue Amendolara and Crafthaus. Photography by Robert Thomas Mullen.
