The Cure for Anything celebrates the 165th Anniversary of the publishing of Herman Melville's Moby Dick. With historical objects and contemporary art, The Cure for Anything will examine what drew people to the sea at the time of Moby Dick and today. Artifacts from Sag Harbor Whaling Museum, the Museum of Early Trades and Seton Hall's Archives will be featured in the show. Artists Amanda Thackray, Dahlia Elsayed, Daniel Spink, Eileen Ferara, Matthew Nicolosi, Sunil Garg, and Viviane Rombaldi Seppey will be featured. Both objects and art will examine how mind, body, soul, and ego drew both Ishmael and many more to the sea.
