Exhibition of ethnographic objects from the Nickle’s numismatic collection, showcasing diverse forms of money used across the globe through time. From some of the earliest minted metals of the ancient world to Chinese knife money and African metalwork, from the Canadian Northwest Coast copper shields to unique stone money from the Island of Yap—the exhibition explores a range in cultural understandings of money, its value in society and asks, what is money?

Curated by Marina Fischer with assistance from Justine Buchler. Organized by Nickle Galleries.
