The Age of Experience: We Tell Better Stories

An exhibition of new work by Amy Fleming, The Age of Experience: We Tell Better Stories, funded by a grant from Puffin Foundation Ltd. This exhibition works to change the narrative around the way we discuss aging by focusing attention on the many vibrant members of our elder community.​​​​​​​ In The Age of Experience: We Tell Better Stories, images of mass-produced discards find new life as impossible robes and royal collars made from pump valves and vacuum tubes, pull tab rings reappear as chain mail, soda bottles form crowns and halos.​​​​​​​ Amy has been working with members of the City of Tallahassee Senior Center to create a series of screen and relief printed portraits. Participants in the project range in age from 60 to their mid 90’s. ​​​​​​​
