Objects Over Cocktails invites the public to discuss the social, historical, political, and material consciousness of things over crafty cocktails with nationally-renowned scholars and artists. Dive in the tank as we talk about "things" in the context of contemporary art, new materialism, theories of assemblage, re-assemblage, and the problem of ephemerality in an at-hand, immersive environment. This event follows a humanities scholar weekend retreat at Elsewhere's museum, featuring  a select group of scholars and artists  exploring the social, historical, political, and material consciousness of "things" in their at-hand, immersive, museum environment. The project is a follow up from a successful panel discussion last month at Cabinet Magazine and supported by the North Carolina Humanities Council and in collaboration with the Weatherspoon Museum.
