The shipwreck narrative is used to explore globalization, colonization and climate change in the masterful works of contemporary American painter Alexis Rockman

In Shipwrecks, Alexis Rockman (born 1962) looks at the world’s waterways as a network by which all of history has traveled. The transport of language, culture, art, architecture, cuisine, religion, disease and warfare can all be traced along the routes of seafaring vessels dating back to and in some cases predating the earliest recorded civilizations.

Through depictions of historic and obscure shipwrecks and their lost cargoes, Rockman addresses the impact—both factual and extrapolated—the migration of goods, people, plants and animals has on the planet.

This timely publication, which includes essays from leading scholars, is propelled by impending climate disaster and the current largest human migration in history, taking place in part by waterway.

An argument for better captaining of spaceship Earth in 'Alexis Rockman: Shipwrecks'

An argument for better captaining of spaceship Earth in 'Alexis Rockman: Shipwrecks'

At a time when the Pacific Northwest is experiencing record-setting temperatures, a pandemic continues to circulate around the globe and migration trauma dominates not just the developing world, but our own southern border, Alexis Rockman’s Shipwrecks feels all too timely. Published to accompany a show currently on view at Guild Hall of East Hampton, it contains 70 color reproductions and essays by Andrea Grover, Daniel Finamore, Trevor Smith, Sasha Archibald, Chanda Laine Carey and Brett Littman. Guild Hall executive director Andrea Grover writes, “In a November 2017 interview on Boston’s WBUR radio station, Rockman said, ‘The history of life on this planet is psychedelic—it’s almost hard to comprehend how exciting it is and how phantasmagorical things can be. The stories of extinction, of invasive species, some of the darker parts of human legacy that have left not only humans doing things to humans, but humans doing things to other life on this Earth.’ Through the lens of the shipwreck, Alexis Rockman examines the complexity of the human psyche, the rearrangement of material culture and economies, and the exploitation of life, with its intended and unintended consequences. His paintings awaken imagination to the colossal impact of the Anthropocene, and with any luck inspire better captaining of spaceship Earth.”
