Towards a New Archaeology brings together artists who reevaluate the history of material culture—presenting installation, painting, and sculptural works that speak to a mystical, transcendent, and visionary future.

Jean Shin’s hanging illuminated sculpture was constructed with hundreds of decommissioned slides from the BAM Hamm Archives, serving as both a monument to BAM’s distinguished history in such a pivotal year and a moment to contemplate our relationship to material and memory in the digital age.
