In 2018, guest curator Glenn Adamson selected ten artists to participate in the project with the charge that only 17th century technology and processes be used in the creation of the objects. To fuel and inspire the work development, the artists and project partners participated in two research trips—the first to Plymouth England in March 2019, followed by Plymouth, Massachusetts in April 2019. These immersive experiences created a sense of communion amongst the artists while providing important scholarly and technical information to inform the development of the work.
These resulting artworks illustrate exceptional technical skill, while also speaking to the social realities behind the material culture, and the examination of the Mayflower crossing through a contemporary lens. For some, the Mayflower voyage and subsequent settlement of Plimoth Colony is a treasured historical event, while for others, the colonization and treatment of the Wampanoag peoples illustrate imperialism and cultural ruin. Through Another Crossing, the artists responded to this complex part of our history and its impact on our culture over the last four centuries.
