Order of Imagination: The Photographs of Olivia Parker
On view July 13, 2019 to November 11, 2019
For more than 40 years, Olivia Parker has explored the relationships between vision, knowledge and the natural world. From deceptively simple still lifes that transform the commonplace to her most recent work exploring memory loss, this is the first exhibition to present a comprehensive overview of Parker’s extensive career. Order of Imagination: The Photographs of Olivia Parker features more than 100 intricately composed works that reflect the artist’s wide creative range and unflagging curiosity.
Order of Imagination: The Photographs of Olivia Parker is organized by the Peabody Essex Museum. Generous support for this exhibition is provided by Susan and Appy Chandler, Carolyn and Peter S. Lynch and The Lynch Foundation, Jennifer and Andrew Borggaard and Kate and Ford O'Neil. We also recognize the generosity of the East India Marine Associates of the Peabody Essex Museum.

"At their frequent best, these images are marvelousness made visible. Marvelousness is to be expected when, as here, invention and slyness and seemingly boundless curiosity come together." - The Boston Globe
