In the Exhibition Gallery & The Mansion
June 3- October 1, 2017

 

Boscobel House and Gardens presents Make-Do’s: Curiously Repaired Antiques, the first exhibition of its kind to celebrate objects that were damaged, but deemed too precious to discard. From porcelain teapots with silver replacement spouts to a repaired tea table purportedly used by George Washington at his Newburgh, New York headquarters, Make-Do’s features 250 curious treasures.

 

Boscobel itself is a kind of make-do. The original 1804-08 Neoclassical mansion was partially demolished in 1955, but—thanks to dedicated preservationists—reassembled and repurposed as a museum. Like Boscobel and its permanent collection, Make-Do’s illustrates the complex relationships between people and the things they choose to save.

 

Make-Do’s: Curiously Repaired Antiques will be open during regular museum hours June 3 through October 1, 2017 and is included with admission to the house or grounds. An illustrated catalogue with essays by Curator Jennifer Carlquist

and collector/designer Andrew Baseman will accompany the exhibition and be available for purchase in the Gift Shop.

Enjoy the antiquing escapades of Andrew Baseman, whose unusual collection of objects that were broken and repaired in surprising ways more than 100 years ago is featured in Boscobel’s current exhibition, Make-Do’s: Curiously Repaired Antiques.

 

Andrew is a savvy collector both personally and professionally. His talent for telling stories through objects is evident in sets that he designs for film and television—including Eat, Pray, Love and Gotham—as it is in his popular blog, Past Imperfect: The Art of Inventive Repair.

 

In conversation with Boscobel Curator Jennifer Carlquist, Andrew will discuss his favorite finds, the ones that got away, and how antiques influence his design work.

 

Friday, September 22 at 6:30pm

$20/ticket, free for members.
