Esperanza Spalding Selects

On view June 9, 2017–January 7, 2018

Musician and four-time Grammy Award–winner Esperanza Spalding has lent her creative vision to shed light on the museum’s collection. This is the 15th installation in the Selects series in which designers, artists, architects and public figures are invited to examine and interpret the museum’s collection of more than 210,000 objects. For her presentation, Spalding has created thought-provoking juxtapositions of collections objects to show how material evolves into different forms as new designers adapt it for their own locales and cultural functions.

Esperanza Spalding Selects is made possible by The Marks Family Foundation Endowment Fund.
