Ghosts and Fragments

Through summer 2023

See how contemporary artists like Nick Cave and Robert Gober explore the nature of presence and absence, reconsidering the physical form of the body or emotional and political states of being. In this installation, disembodied artifacts—fragments of limbs, fractured objects, and haunting icons—yield poetic, political, and subjective interpretations of the self, invisibility, and otherness.
