'A Curious Inventory'

The Art Academy’s Chidlaw Gallery hosts a closing reception for a solo exhibition featuring the work of interdisciplinary artist and recent Cincinnati ex-pat Joe Hedges. A Curious Inventory, curated by AAC undergrad Dani Tellez, includes Hedges’ paintings and sculptures alongside an eight-minute video documenting his Internet project, mintabox.com, which he’s been crowd-sourcing since 2012 and involves anonymous contributors adding words and images to a digital “box.” According to the artist, a crucial element of inspiration for the project is “the idea of the ways we collect and store information digitally, physically and psychologically.”


Closing reception: 6-9 p.m. Friday. Free. 1212 Jackson St., Over-the-Rhine, artacademy.edu
