Joe Mangrum

Joe Mangrum transforms the Kimball Gallery into an alchemist's laboratory. He deconstructs consumer culture and modern idyllic attachments to explore our meanings of wealth. Drawing inspiration from the de Young's historical collection, Joe invites the public to take part in his allegorical journey, by gold-leafing various everyday and ritualized objects. A landscape will emerge serving as a mirror to our obsessions, connections and true desires

The Kimball Education Gallery is supported by the Winifred Johnson Clive Foundation and sponsored by American Express.
