Pearl Street Gallery, Chelsea, MA

As an extension of the 2005 'Salt Mountain' exhibition at the Noble Maritime Collection in Staten Island, the exhibition 'Landing Salt' exhibited works created by artists inspired by a salt dock in Staten Island in Chelsea MA, another port city that is home to a large salt dock. 

In Chelsea, Landing Studio curated additional pieces by local artists that were added to the exhibition, including detailed photographs of the machines that work the piles, and documentation of changing light patterns that interact with the salt, machinery, and ships, coupled with writings and statistics about the ships and cargoes coming to the dock. 

Landing Studio designed and installed a large scale floor mapping depicting Boston's inner harbor and shipping infrastructure used to import the salt, as well as exhibition invitations and maps.
