Exhibition: Damage Control: Art and Destruction since 1950 at the Hirshhorn Museum / Washington, DC

10/24/2013 - 05/26/2014

This is the first in-depth exploration of the theme of destruction in international contemporary visual culture. In all areas of art production since the mid-twentieth century, the notion of destruction has played an important role, whether as spectacle, as catharsis, as a reaction to world-weariness, as a means of depersonalizing emotional or cultural angst, as a form of rebellion against institutions, or as an essential component of re-creation. This ground-breaking exhibition includes works by a diverse range of international artists working in painting, sculpture, photography, film, installation, and performance.

This exhibition is supported through Exhibitions Abroad Support Program.
