In the Wake

January 24, 2019 — March 31, 2019

Artists: Natalia Almada, Carolina Caycedo, Clemencia Echeverri, Dara Friedman, Wangechi Mutu, Shelley Niro

In the Wake featured a selection of film and video from the Museum’s permanent collection that employ water as a central motif. The exhibition was conceived as a contemporary response to Frederick Judd Waugh’s paintings of seascapes on view in the Beren Gallery. In the Wake consisted of time-based media that conveyed the dynamic properties of water in ways that both intersect and diverge from Waugh’s paintings. The artists employ scale, sound and movement to explore the force and scope of water, simultaneously focusing on its relationship to human experience. They highlight water as a repository of memory, an entity that facilitates migration, labor and commerce, and as a receptacle that both receives and engenders trauma and violence. In the Wake displayed water’s fluid traits and what remains from our encounters with it.
