Ongoing Exhibition

Mikala Dwyer: Penelope and the Seahorse

The newest work of Mikala Dwyer will be an aquatic-themed installation, Penelope and the Seahorse which alludes to the hippocampus and its multiple meanings: the genus name for the fragile and now endangered sea-horse; the equine fish in Greek mythology who drew Poseidon’s water chariot; and the structure within the brain often associated with memory and spatial navigation. Incorporating antiquities from the museum’s collections, Dwyer’s work also includes video and sound collaborations with animator Gina Moore and composer James Hayes.
