Pompeii Archive features a selection of recent work by American photographer William Wylie exploring the archeological site of Pompeii in highly evocative images. Wylie’s interest in the contemporary state of Pompeii began with his discovery of the work of Giorgio Sommer (1834–1914), a German photographer who documented the excavation of the site in the mid-nineteenth century. An avid historian and collector, Wylie began collecting Sommer’s images and researching his work, particularly Sommer’s strategic use of photography to flatten the picture plane and create layered and stratified images that evoked the archeological processes. Examples of Sommer’s work are also included in the exhibition. This ongoing research, and the body of work that has resulted, was supported by Yale University’s Doran Artist in Residency awards at the Sol and Carol LeWitt estate in Praiano, Italy, where Wylie was a resident in 2012 and 2015.

Vanessa German is a visual and performance artist based in the Pittsburgh neighborhood of Homewood. Homewood is the community that is the driving force behind German’s powerful performance work, and whose cast-off relics form the language of her copiously embellished sculptures. As a citizen artist, German explores the power of art and love as a transformative force in the dynamic cultural ecosystem of communities and neighborhoods. She is the founder of Love Front Porch and the ARThouse, a community arts initiative for the children of Homewood.

sometimes. we. cannot. be. with. our. bodies. is an immersive installation of sculpture and sound that originated at the Mattress Factory, Pittsburgh, in 2017, and is being reimagined in The Fralin. In the artist’s own words, “this work is a dimensional living reckoning. the living reckoning is bold,erruptive,disruptive work against systems & pathologies that oppress & subvert overt & covert violence onto & into the lives & humanity of marginalized people on this land.” German will be in residence in March, working with students and community members, creating art, poetry, and understanding. The work will travel to The Union for Contemporary Art, as part of the annual Wanda D. Ewing Commission in September 2019.

Just as modern streaming services give us unprecedented freedom to watch television series in our own order, time, and place, print series allowed viewers in the Renaissance Netherlands to enjoy the same sets of images as their peers in more personalized and accessible ways. The Print Series in Bruegel’s Netherlands: Dutch and Flemish Works from the Permanent Collection places sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Netherlandish prints in their original context of series to explore the practices of looking at a succession of images. Many of these series illustrate cosmological, religious, and social ideas, challenging Pieter Bruegel the Elder and other print designers to represent these themes in a manner that appealed to both personalized and general tastes. This exhibition also allows the visitor to consider the ways in which abstract ideas were illustrated in more recognizable contexts.

Image: Hieronymus Cock, Netherlandish, c.1510–1570, after Pieter Bruegel the Elder, Netherlandish, 1529–1569. Prudence (Prudentia) from the series The Seven Virtues, 1559 (detail). Engraving, 8 7/8 x 11 5/8 in (22.5 x 29.5 cm). Museum Purchase with Curriculum Support Funds, 1982.7.
