Examining Evidence: This Week in Crime Unseen Programming

Please join us this week as we host two programs examining the very nature of physical evidence and how this evidence allows people to return again and again to the scenes of violent crimes. Both events, which run in conjunction with our current exhibition, Crime Unseen, are free and open to the public.

Video Playlist: The Evidence Show(s)
Featuring work by:
Steve Matheson
Semi-Conductor
Jessie Stead
Michael Bell-Smith
Noah Klersfeld
Steve Reinke
Jacob Ciocci

In criminal cases, physical evidence is paramount, offering tangible proof of a violent crime. Before becoming evidence, however these things were just things and these places were just places. The perpetrators were just people, not criminals but strangers and neighbors. The work in this program considers the potential for everyday objects, ordinary surroundings and average people to become evidence of something beyond the familiar. Curated by Jesse MacLean.

Murder in a Nutshell: Corinne May Botz at the Glessner House
Corinne May Botz examines real-life crime scenes one step removed, photographing dollhouse “nutshell studies” created by criminologist and heiress Frances Glessner Lee that meticulously recreate unexplained deaths. These models, based on actual homicides, suicides and accidental deaths from the 1940s and ’50s, were created to train detectives to assess visual evidence. Botz will speak about her time photographing the grisly nutshells at Glessner’s childhood home, the Glessner House Museum.
