In March 2019, multidisciplinary artist Moheb Soliman was artist-in-residence at the M. In this essay, he relates how his search for Great Lakes-related landscapes in the M’s collection led to an unexpected deep dive into unexpected waters: the seldom-considered, eccentric database used to catalog and store archival information about the artworks held by the museum.
Before he began his residency at the M this past spring, artist and poet Moheb Soliman spoke with Curator of Learning and Engagement about his work and what he hoped to explore during his time at the museum. Don’t miss your chance to hear from the artist in person at an event on Thurs., July 11, 6 p.m. at the M!
