“This series of work has proven to be of great interest — so much so that Cortney Lane Stell has joined in as well,” explains Anderson. “I think it is a good fit for her, as she tends to curate exhibitions which develop layered ideas and chooses objects that play out differences and similarities.” The collective hope of the curators and the group as a whole, she adds, is to extend the conversations started by Stuff(ed), which did not always adhere to the usual cuddly way we view softness. If you happen to agree that art is supposed to get people talking, this is a show for you.
