FreePort [No. 002]: Marianne Mueller
On view March 26, 2011 to March 4, 2012
Located in the: Hilborn and Seamans Galleries
Swiss artist Marianne Mueller delves into PEM's collection to create an installation that combines museum objects and her own photographs. Unexpected juxtapositions of time, place and influence arise in this project, Any House Is a Home, which engages some of the central issues raised by a collection - the nature, definition and purpose of an archive. Mueller's first solo exhibition at a U.S. museum is organized by PEM Curator of Photography Phillip Prodger.
Support provided by the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia, donors to the FreePort Fund and the East India Marine Associates (EIMA) of the Peabody Essex Museum.
