After a year of closure, NUMU is excited to reopen with the brand new immersive exhibition SAWYER ROSE: Carrying Stones. This exhibition takes over the entire ground level of the museum and presents pieces from the artist’s ongoing series The Carrying Stones Project, as well as several new works that address the burdens placed on women during the COVID-19 pandemic, such as the challenge to provide schooling and childcare while maintaining a professional occupation.
The Carrying Stones Project uses sculpture, portrait photography, data visualization, and social practice works to explore women’s work inequity in its many forms, in a transformational study of the personal, political weight of unseen, unpaid labor that publicly reveals the layered elements of women’s work with weight and substance.
