At the Vibrating Edges

Over the past two years, we have been thinking about our programming as interconnected lines of inquiry, learning how exhibitions and programs—not just artworks—can be curated into reciprocal conversation. It is in-between these exhibitions and programs—at their vibrating edges—where new connections are ignited across Agnes’s collections and commissions.

Patterns for All Bodies

Re-patterning garments from the Dress Collection at Agnes so that any body can make the clothes, or have the clothes made, for their own body. Local drag artists show us how it can be done.

Reflecting on the Collection

Bringing collections, artists and communities together. From collection highlights to asynchronous children’s programs and more, find interdisciplinary perspectives and activities that reflect on themes inspired by Agnes’s collection.

Queering the Collection: The Unnamed Genderfluid Figure

Queering the Collection: The Unnamed Genderfluid Figure

Agnes highlights queer, trans and intersex hirstories in the collection. This highlight looks at an architectural wooden relief from the Migratory Collection, providing a marginalized example of gender fluidity within devotional art and a window beyond otherwise suppressed politically religious opinions.

AGNES Learns

AGNES Learns

AGNES Learns is a digital resource for children and families. Artworks from the Agnes collection inspire fun ways to explore, understand and get creative through videos and activities.

With Collection Count + Care, we bring stewardship forward from back of house and mark a moment in Agnes’s transformation. As we pack, we take stock, and consider what it means to care for and be accountable to a public collection.

Living Intuition

Living Intuition

Inspired by the recent micro-residency, Living Intuition travels the range from meditation sounds to soul nostalgia to karaoke jams. We celebrate our capacity to be affected as what unifies our experience into one variegated totality.
