On the Wrong Side of History is an exhibition that looks to museum collections and proposes that a new order of things is all that is needed to produce meaning.
Before Linnaean classification, early orders of things in the natural world were created based on various types of resemblances. Typologies of resemblances created relationships between one thing to another by significant placement, similarity, and difference. At the time these orders, random though they seem now, framed a perception of the world based on semblance; what a different world it must have been.
On view are 7 sculptures installed in various cases within the Egyptian Galleries at the Brooklyn Museum, 3 drawings and a large-scale monument on the 5th Floor lobby.
