This exhibition of photographs by contemporary artist Gregory Vershbow explores the interactions of art objects within environments and circumstances ordinarily beyond public view. In storage facilities and conservation laboratories, and at monuments under restoration, Vershbow photographs art objects wrapped in plastic, protected by foam, nested in boxes and set in surprising juxtapositions with other objects from different eras.
