Retrospective: an Archive of Youth Culture

Exhibition Design


Items have both a physical existence and a meaningful attribution. While some items retain their physicality, they become less meaningful as culture shifts towards new + more exciting artifacts.

Retrospective: an Archive of Youth Culture is a curated collection of items that serve as a reflection on the youth cultural experience from 2000 to 2010 in the United States. All exhibition pieces are placed in vacuum-sealed transparent bags to preserve their beauty and to prevent decay. The purpose of this collection is to give abandoned and overlooked objects new meaning as they reflect on this era of time.
