Contemporary art in a grand Victorian landscape
Founded in 1848, Forest Hills is one of the nations most splendid garden cemeteries. A tranquil green sanctuary of impressive charm and beauty, this evocative environment inspires artistic meditation on large themes: memory, identity, history, nature, human mortality and the life of the spirit. ReVisited was conceived to offer artists an opportunity to return to this rich and complex site and create new work; over 90 artists who had participated in the Trust's past exhibitions were invited to develop proposals. Fourteen artists were selected by our exhibition jury to create new work exploring the history, terrain and spiritual qualities of this majestic landscape.
The jury consisted of Cheryl Brutvan (Beal Curator of Contemporary Art, Musuem of Fine Arts/Boston), Lynda Hartigan (Chief Curator, Peabody Essex Museum), Susan Stoops (Curator of Contemporary Art, Worcester Museum), and Carol Warner (Corporate Curator, Fidelity Investments). These accomplished curators selected artists working in diverse styles and a range of media, including natural materials such as branches and pine needles, stainless steel mesh, cement, wood inscribed with poetry, and bronze.
A List of Participating Artists is available on this site, together with information about their earlier work at Forest Hills.
