Oakland, CA / 2018

Catherine Wagner / Archæology in Reverse

For the 2018 exhibition marking the end of Catherine Wagner’s tenure as the Dean of the Arts at Mills College in Oakland, modem collaborated with the artist to create a series of architectural instruments and interventions within the fabric of the Mills College Art Museum. Enabling what Wagner terms ‘Archaeology in Reverse,’ these building-scaled periscopes, filters, furniture and landscapes frame photographs, sculptures, performances, and, above all, the 100-year old architecture of the museum itself.
