Cleveland's near west side gallery SPACES is a preeminent force in presenting artists who push the envelopes of expression and exploration. SPACES described its winter exhibition, The People's Museum of Revisionist Natural Itstory (PMRNI) as a "collaborative effort seeking narrative justice."
Artists from across the United States and abroad collaborated to present the installation of PMRNI as an actual but also satirical natural history museum. Complete with a gift shop, an historical timeline, and exhibits featuring multiple departmental disciplines, PMRNI illustrated the often-comical representations between real and bogus artifacts and their descriptions.
