A Space for Dialogue: Images of War

Posted on September 01, 2006 by Kristin Swan

Hood Quarterly, autumn 2006 

This fall when you visit the Hood, make a point to see the current Space for Dialogue exhibition in the entrance lobby. Five powerful selections from the collection including prints by Francisco Goya and Käthe Kollwitz, photographs by James Nachtwey and Dmitri Baltermants, and a bronze sculpture by Marius Jean Antonin Mercie come together to present a profound and moving picture of war and its victims.

On view through early December, the assembly of these particular works strives to widen our understanding of war and of the diverse approaches different artists take in communicating aspects of war such as suffering, bravery, endurance, and even small moments of hope.

This exhibition is curated by Cristina Duncan Evans '06, former Education Intern at the Hood.

A Space for Dialogue and its free accompanying brochure are made possible through a generous gift from the Class of 1948.
