Description

Mobile Memory considers the complexities of memories by examining how objects carry, commemorate, and circulate ideas. Memories take on new meanings in their movement from one time and place to another. This exhibition considers not only what these objects meant to their creators and inheritors, but also how contemporary viewers add another layer of experience as they carry these objects with them. These artworks, selected by nine SMA interns, illuminate how different cultures communicate personal and shared memory across temporal and spatial distances.
