Michael Rakowitz has been selected to show a selection from his series The Invisible Enemy Should Not Exist (Recovered, Missing, Stolen) at the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World (ISAW), in their exhibition From Ancient to Modern: Archaeology and Aesthetics. For the first time at ISAW, modern and contemporary art will be shown alongside ancient archaeological artifacts. The exhibition "examines the fascinating process through which archaeological objects are transformed from artifacts to artworks and, sometimes, to popular icons, as they move from the sites in which they were discovered, to mass media, to museum displays...It reveals the role of archaeologists, art historians, journalists, museum curators, and conservators in constructing identities for ancient artifacts that not only resonated with Western poplar and artistic culture, but that also positioned the finds as integral to the history of Western civilization." From Ancient to Modern: Archaeology and Aesthetics open February 12, 2015. Click here for the full press release.
