Argentina-born, Berlin-based artist Tomás Saraceno maintains a multidimensional practice that engages local communities, scientific researchers, and a studio team comprised of designers, architects, anthropologists, biologists, engineers, art historians and musicians. His multidisciplinary projects aim to reorient our understanding of our place in the world, ultimately building awareness that we exist as actors in a complex network of interconnected human and nonhuman forces.
Marquette faculty members from across campus who have expertise (and often teach classes in) the Basic Needs and Justice theme in the Marquette Core Curriculum have curated pairs of images that address, explore, and challenge both our notion of what it takes to flourish as human beings and our understanding of what we are obliged to do to help one another meet those needs.
This exhibition—curated by Dr. Samantha Majhor, Assistant Professor in Marquette University's Department of English—features a selection of works by Indigenous makers. It will utilize the gallery space as an object laboratory for students from Dr. Majhor’s spring 2023 courses. Students will explore material culture and materialisms, the role of nonhuman objects as storytellers, Indigenous knowledge and ways of knowing, and the fraught history of applying museological standards to culturally specific objects.
This innovative exhibition was developed in collaboration with Marquette University’s Physical Therapy Program. Moving Pictures: Kinesiology 1 includes objects from the Haggerty Museum of Art’s collection that depict bodies in motion, and that reference exercise, athletics, and interactions with the environment.
