Alexis Rockman: Shipwrecks
The PEM has secured limited advanced copies of the exhibition catalog before its wider release later this year.
By Andrea Grover, with an Introduction by Daniel Finamore, Trevor Smith and contributions by Sasha Archibald, Chanda Laine Carey, and Brett Littman
In Shipwrecks, Alexis Rockman (born 1962) looks at the world’s waterways as a network by which all of history has traveled. The transport of language, culture, art, architecture, cuisine, religion, disease and warfare can all be traced along the routes of seafaring vessels dating back to and in some cases predating the earliest recorded civilizations.
Through depictions of historic and obscure shipwrecks and their lost cargoes, Rockman addresses the impact—both factual and extrapolated—the migration of goods, people, plants and animals has on the planet.
This timely publication, which includes essays from leading scholars, is propelled by impending climate disaster and the current largest human migration in history, taking place in part by waterway.
This publication accompanies the exhibition, Alexis Rockman: Shipwrecks, organized by Guild Hall of East Hampton, N.Y. and presented by the Peabody Essex Museum. On view March 6 - May 31, 2021.
