$25,000 to support Congregations, an exhibition guest curated by Klaus Kertess with accompanying catalogue. Manila-born Ossorio’s series Congregations consists of an astounding array of found materials, including eyes from taxidermy shops, antlers, seashells, bones, plastic wares and driftwood. In the 1950s, Ossorio was applying objects to paintings, and by the 1960s he had completely replaced palette and brush with found materials. The exhibition will travel to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
