Art in Mourning
November 29, 1992 - January 31, 1993
The exhibition will feature about ten works chosen from several of the Museum's departments, focusing on art's role in the process of mourning: its capacity to remind, to honor, to celebrate, to lament--in short, to memorialize. The exhibition will cross a broad range of cultures and centuries with works made for both private and public use, created by renowned artists and anonymous craftsmen. Art in Mourning is being organized as part of an annual nationwide commemoration of the shared loss due to AIDS.

Curator
