A Cache of Kinetic Art:
Tiny Intricacies (March 13 – July 12, 2020)
Timeless Movements (March 12 – July 11, 2021)

Our multi-year exhibition series, A Cache of Kinetic Art, showcases contemporary automata and their inventive creators. They focus on contemporary interpretations of 19th century mechanical music and automata, fully embracing advances in both machine and digital technology.  Juxtaposing the technical ingenuity and functionality of a bygone era, the kinetic works in this exhibition highlight innovative engineering, design, imagination and messaging of present-day artisans.

For artists, below are the prospectus and the entry and owner verification forms, for the exhibitions coming up in 2020 and 2021.

The due date for entries for Tiny Intricacies is September 12, 2019.
