Informing Memory

Informing Memory: Process, Place, and Notion
January 27 – April 16, 2022

If memory refers to the process of acquiring, storing, retaining, and retrieving information, what becomes of the information that takes up residence in our hearts – in our minds? What do we choose to remember and why? Thirteen Phillips Exeter Academy alumnae featured in, Informing Memory: Process, Place, and Notion collectively explore these themes as they share their work and artmaking process. The result - a landscape of mind and place stretched out before our eyes. This reflection of gathered memories, notions of self and environment – both real and imagined, offers us an opportunity to ground ourselves in our own unique search and journey to those intricate spaces within, challenging us to be intentional and present within our own thoughts and experiences.
