Praying for Time draws from the Rose Art Museum’s permanent collection to reflect the diversity of voices and concerns in art produced during the pivotal period from 1980 through the early 2000s. Marked by the fall of the Berlin Wall, the attacks on September 11th, and civil wars, the end of the 20th century can also be viewed as a time that presaged immense global, social, and digital revolutions that forever transformed our world. Featuring work in a variety of media by a roster of international figures, Praying for Time illuminates this critical period through a selection highlights from the Rose’s deep holdings and recent acquisitions.
