From John Soltes’ article for Hollywood Soapbox:
This exhibition combines the old with the new. There are still those unique documents and objects from the time period, including a wooden cane from 1690 and a loom owned by Rebecca Putnam, but now they are brought into curatorial conversation with pieces by Alexander McQueen from his 2007 collection In Memory of Elizabeth How, Salem, 1692. McQueen, the late British fashion designer, was actually a descendant of How, one of the women who was condemned and hanged during the trials, according to press notes. Another addition to the exhibition are selections from Frances F. Denny’s photographic series, Major Arcana: Portraits of Witches in America. Ultimately, this Reckoning and Reclaiming is a marriage between the historic and the novel, the forgotten and the familiar.
