Jun. 11, 2020

From seized weapons to playable musical instruments, from destruction to creation. Visit the Gallery’s transit room with Senior curator of modern and contemporary international art, Nicholas Chambers, to unbox the ‘Disarm’ sculptures of Mexican artist Pedro Reyes. These fascinating objects hold a message of change that continues to resonate.
