Where Questions Live Exhibit
Where the Questions Live: An Exploration of Humans in Nature is a curiosity-driven, format-bending romp with artist Wes Sam-Bruce, that adventurously investigates the connections, metaphors, and experiences of human beings within the natural world. Best known for his immersive, story-saturated exhibitions, Sam-Bruce creates a site-specific, multi-sensory, installation at PEM that functions as an enveloping world within a world. This exhibition also features an original soundscape, scored by award-winning composer Ruth Mendelson.
Salem Witch Trials Exhibit
In this exhibition, learn more about factors that fueled the storied crisis, including individuals who rose to defend those unjustly accused, and explore two creative responses by contemporary artists with ancestral links to the trials. Both projects directly speak to the historical trauma evident in the authentic 17th-century documents and objects on view and provide a powerful connection between past and present.
