The Harvard Art Museums present ‘Doris Salcedo: The Materiality of Mourning’, which brings together a constellation of recent works by Colombian artist Doris Salcedo. The artist is renowned for her sculpture and installations which transform familiar, everyday objects into moving and powerful testimonies of loss and remembrance.
‘The Materiality of Mourning’ features four separate installations, with a number of Salcedo’s works created between 2001 and today. Each of the sculptures on display is a response to political violence and social injustice.
