January 28 - February 14, 2020
100s Day is a popular elementary school celebration/activity/event commonly observed in grade one or two in North America. To signify the 100th day of the school year, students are asked to bring in a collection of 100 objects to present to the class. The school day is devoted to using the collections to make the abstract concept of “100” concrete in many forms.
Through quantifying activities, students’ collections are used to explore differences in the size, weight, length and value of different groups of a hundred (eg, the weight of 100 pennies vs. the weight of 100 cotton balls). The act of comparing, contrasting, speculating, and meticulously studying each others’ collections both clarifies and further complicates the quantity “100.” Much like exhibition making itself, the tradition of 100s Day is predicated on using materials to bring clarity to the obscure.
The exhibition 100s Day brings together collections of 100 by 9 artists:
