I thought folks might enjoy reading about a project that has some striking similarities to Art+History. Irish artist Jennifer Walshe is currently exhibiting “sound reliquaries” she created and then photographed in the rooms of the Moore family apartment at the Tenement Museum in New York City. In addition to being a meticulous and moving artwork in itself, it is also another great example of how artists can draw inspiration from historic spaces and how art installations can enliven a historic house museum. I imagine that this project could come up at the NEMA Conference panel, featuring Art+History curator Meg Rotzel, about enlivening historic sites through art in November.
