after life

   

 

 

 

After Life featured historical and contemporary artwork that examines death, mourning traditions, and memorials, and how our understanding of these ideas and practices has changed over time. The work on view demonstrated a shift from overt representations of death via the body to contemporary artists grappling with death in more fragmented ways, often where the body or loss is represented as a trace, via abstraction, or where emphasis is placed instead on memorial objects or sites of significance. The show included work by Andrea Bowers, Ellen Carey, Alexandra Pacheco Garcia, Jason Lazarus, David Maisel, David Orr, Ira Sachs, Loren Schwerd, Sarah Sudhoff, and objects from the collection of UCR/California Museum of Photography.

This exhibition took place at The Luckman Gallery at California State University, Los Angeles

March 29-May 24, 2014
