Opening Reception For Summer Exhibitions says
From July 29 to October 15, 2016, the Pulitzer will present three exhibitions that reflect and explore diverse experiences of the everyday—Claes Oldenburg’s soft sculptures, early eighteenth-century decorative arts objects, and a site-specific commission by Berlin-based architecture collective raumlaborberlin. Taken together, these exhibitions demonstrate the potential of commonplace objects to embody the identities and aspirations of the people who give them form and meaning.
