The Summit Meetings was a convening of objects from the collection of ordinary items in The Burden of Objects, along with some sixty others borrowed from civilization, art, history, and community museums in Lethbridge, Windsor, and Quebec City. In this exhibition, the placement of the objects came together on site, in real time. Their arrangement was formulated like a conversation, an exchange. Their stories intermingled. The objects cooperated, became a collective.
