“Passages” is a site-specific installation, exploring themes of heritage, identity, persecution and privilege. The installation is from a female point of view and includes original family wedding dresses overlaid with other clothing and accessories owned by mothers, grandmothers, and great-grandmothers.
The installation also features hangings and floor objects related to their standard of living and aspirations. Hand-printed wallpaper brings together imagery culled from family photographs and objects that refer to immigration, plantation life, and slavery.
“Passages” at the Maier Museum of Art is generously sponsored by Maier Member, Sally Maier Rowe ’67.
