Living Rooms | The American Period Rooms: Inside/Out

Exhibition Website

Apr 2 2016 - Mar 5 2017

When visiting Mia’s American period rooms, Minneapolis-based photographer Anthony Marchetti became interested in the artifice of these spaces, especially the stories of how each room was disassembled, moved, then reassembled in the museum. After months of research in Mia’s curatorial archives and extensive research trips, Marchetti has created a new series of photographs that meditates on the displacement of these once-functional living spaces and reincorporates them into their original locations.

This project is part of Living Rooms, an initiative to present Mia’s historic interiors and decorative arts collections in new ways.
