Yesterday's Tomorrow: Selections from the Rose Collection, 1933–2018

Gerald S. and Sandra Fineberg Gallery and Lower Rose

February 7, 2020 - September 13, 2020

This presentation from the collection brings together works by artists who wrestle with, and create room for, circuitous trajectories. Reckoning with complexities, atrocities, and losses both recent and removed, these artists confront the challenge of giving shape to subjects which resist direct representation, and locating their own place within the imprint of broad and tangled influences.
