Alexis Rockman  Shipwrecks

The shipwreck narrative is used to explore globalization, colonization and climate change in the masterful works of contemporary American painter Alexis Rockman In Shipwrecks, Alexis Rockman (born 1962) looks at the world's waterways as a network by which all of history has traveled. The transport of language, culture, art, architecture, cuisine, religion, disease and warfare can all be traced along the routes of seafaring vessels dating back to and in some cases predating the earliest recorded civilizations. Through depictions of historic and obscure shipwrecks and their lost cargoes, Rockman addresses the impact--both factual and extrapolated--the migration of goods, people, plants and animals has on the planet. This timely publication, which includes essays from leading scholars, is propelled by impending climate disaster and the current largest human migration in history, taking place in part by waterway.

Alexis Rockman  Works on Paper

On Alexis Rockman's darkly surreal vision of the collisions between civilization and nature With a career spanning over three decades, internationally acclaimed American artist Alexis Rockman is well known for his complex, large-scale paintings and works on paper depicting the collision between civilization and nature. Rockman synthesizes elements of human history, natural science, landscape painting, art history and science fiction with passionate interest in climate change and globalization, to create images that reveal our world balancing on the precipice. Alexis Rockman: Works on Paperis the first comprehensive survey of the artist's graphic work, documenting his extraordinary accomplishments as a draftsman through a meticulous selection of watercolors, gouaches, oil drawings and field studies. Designed by Tony Morgan in close collaboration with the artist, the book reproduces over 150 works, many of which have never before been published. Included here are his earliest watercolors from the 1980s, often of hybrid and mutated animals; the Field Drawings, created in Guyana and other locations from mud sourced on-site; the ominously beautiful and apocalyptic Weather Drawings; painterly works relating to his epic The Great Lakes Cycle; Wallace's Line, a visual investigation of the life of scientist and explorer Alfred Russel Wallace; and Lost at Sea, his most recent body of work focused on shipwrecks. The book includes newly commissioned essays by Helen Molesworth and David Rimanelli. In addition, it includes a visual appendix of Rockman's graphic influences, with commentary by the artist. Born in 1962 in New York, where he lives and works, Alexis Rockmanhas had solo museum exhibitions at the Brooklyn Museum, the Wexner Center for the Arts (both 2004), the Rhode Island School of Design (2005), the Smithsonian American Art Museum (2010), the Drawing Center (2013) and the Grand Rapids Art Museum (2018).

Guild Hall, one of the first multidisciplinary centers in the country to combine a museum, theater, and education space under one roof, was established in 1931 as a gathering place for community where an appreciation for the arts would serve to encourage greater civic participation. For nearly nine decades, Guild Hall has embraced this open-minded vision and provided a welcoming environment for the public to engage with art exhibitions, performances, and educational offerings. Art and artists have long been the engine of Guild Hall's activities and the institution continues to find innovative ways to support creativity in everyone.

Our Blue Planet  An Introduction to Maritime and Underwater Archaeology

Our Blue Planet provides a comprehensive introduction to the field of maritime and underwater archaeology. Situating the field within the broader study of history and archaeology, this book advocates that an understanding of how our ancestors interacted with rivers, lakes, and oceans is integral to comprehending the human past. Our Blue Planet covers the full breadth of maritime and underwater archaeology, including formerly terrestrial sites drowned by rising sea levels, coastal sites, and a wide variety of wreck sites ranging across the globe and spanning from antiquity to World War II. Beginning with a definition of the field and several chapters dedicated to the methods of finding, recording, and interpreting submerged sites, Our Blue Planet provides an entry point for all readers, whether or not they are familiar with maritime and underwater archaeology or archaeology in general. The book then shifts to a thematic approach with chapters exploring human interactions with the watery world, both along the coasts and by ship. These chapters discuss the relationships between culture, technology, and environment that allowed humans through time to spread across the globe. Because ships were the primary means for humans to interact with large bodies of water, they are the focus of several chapters on the development of shipbuilding technology, the lives of sailors, and the uses of ships in exploration, expansion, and warfare. The book ends with chapters on how and why the non-renewable submerged archaeological record should be managed, so that both current and future generations can learn from the achievements and failures of past societies, as well as on how anyone can become involved in maritime and underwater archaeology. Throughout, the reader benefits from the personal reflections of a number of leading figures in the field.

The Routledge Handbook of Global Historical Archaeology

The Routledge Handbook of Global Historical Archaeology is a multi-authored compendium of articles on specific topics of interest to today’s historical archaeologists, offering perspectives on the current state of research and collectively outlining future directions for the field. The broad range of topics covered in this volume allows for specificity within individual chapters, while building to a cumulative overview of the field of historical archaeology as it stands, and where it could go next.

This is a comprehensive treatment of the sub-discipline, engaging key contemporary debates, and providing a series of specially-commissioned geographical overviews to complement the more theoretical explorations. This book is designed to offer a starting point for students who may wish to pursue particular topics in more depth, as well as for non-archaeologists who have an interest in historical archaeology. Archaeologists, historians, preservationists, and all scholars interested in the role historical archaeology plays in illuminating daily life during the past five centuries will find this volume engaging and enlightening.
