Andrea Gyorody, Ellen Johnson '33 Assistant Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, leads this month’s AMAM in the AM and discusses works from her exhibition, The Thingness of Things: Portraits of Objects.

The exhibition gathers works of object portraiture—a category of images that merges the tradition of still-life painting with the much more recent phenomenon of photography. These pictures treat objects less as dull, inanimate things than as subjects as lively and varied as their human makers, owners, and consumers.

Eleven of the works are accompanied by poems written by Oberlin College students with the guidance of faculty poets Chanda Feldman and Lynn Powell.
