MASS Gallery presents Pocket Object, a traveling exhibition of small, keychain-based editions by over 100+ national artists. Pocket Object asks artists across multiple disciplines and mediums to each produce a small edition of keychain-sized objects available for cheap purchase. The tiny totems are meant to jangle on your hip, tumble in a tote, or simply be a small scale reminder of the practice of a favorite artist or friend. The traveling exhibition is organized by Chicago-based artist and recent Kansas City transplant Noel Morical, who began macrameing small keychains five years ago as a way to scale down her practice for work trades and friend gifts. Pocket Object is an expansion of this expression, an affordable way to purchase work while supporting your favorite artist’s practice. The small, dangling works are each priced at under $100 and explore the endless variability of small scale sculpture. The scaled editions are meant to be hitched to your car keys and co-mingled with your stack of rewards cards, or hung in your space, like a painting. Mobile works coming to an art space near you.
