Mysterium Tremendum: collecting curiosity. A collaborative installation by Matt Barton and Scott Johnson.
August 9 - December 17, 2016
Mysterium Tremendum: collecting curiosity is inspired by the arrival of Shakespeare’s First Folio at CU-Boulder. The installation celebrates the important roles curiosity and wonder play in the pursuit of knowledge. Mysterium Tremendum presents a “cabinet of curiosities” that brings together materials from libraries, special collections, departments and research centers at CU. Among the highlights on view are materials gathered by the artists from collections near and far alongside objects and implements that inspire the work of faculty.
