SuperMonster市City! explores pop culture by developing museum exhibitions and is presenting a new installation called Collecting Memories: A Love Story opening April 28 and running through May 8, 2022 at Squirrel Haus Arts, 3450 Snelling Ave, Minneapolis, Minnesota 55406
This immersive and fun exhibit by Stephen Rueff features toys from the 1960’s – present and family photos from David Barnhill’s Collection, an original soundscape by Emmy Carter, and augmented reality experience from Amir Berenjian. A lyrical exploration into the mind of a collector that reveals the hidden memories embedded into pop culture objects.
The exhibition provides attendees a postcard making station and an opportunity to record a message reflecting on a pop culture character that was instrumental in their life. A mini Toy Swap and ComiCon will be held on Saturday April 30 from 10- 4 in the Squirrel Haus community room. Taken together, this is a fun installation that celebrates pop culture, provokes nostalgia, and provides reflection on the ubiquitous nature of collecting.
