Speechless: Text & Image in Global Culture

June 7 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Wosene Worke Kosrof, Scrolls of the Ancestor #IV, 1994

Take a fascinating look at how words, aesthetics and materials have supported religious, political and socio-cultural agendas for millennia at the Harn Museum of Art. The Speechless exhibition looks at the use of words within art, covering a range of cultures and periods from BCE to the 21st century. Throughout human history, texts within art or craft have communicated reflection, persuasion and delight to viewers, shoring up or challenging ideas of power, tradition, identity and beauty. Admission is free.
