In And Out Of The Box

 

Concept: The ebb and flow of consumerism initiated the decline of shopping in person at big box/warehouse stores and the rise of the virtual/mail order shopping experience.  As a result of this shift, there has naturally been a rise in the number of boxes being sent around the world from retailer to buyer.  Additionally, the experience of packaging, sealing, opening, and unwrapping has exponentially grown.  In And Out Of The Box invites imaginative makers to explore this unfolding cultural phenomenon. This show will address the nature of “boxing”: packing, sending, delivering, receiving, etc. All boxes and packaging material will be displayed in this exhibit, as we strive to make the process of the delivery a focus of the show.
