The quote tweeted was accompanied by a link to this upcoming exhibition at the Smithsonian Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, DC: "Art and Destruction is the first in-depth exploration of the theme of destruction in international contemporary visual culture... This ground-breaking exhibition includes works by a diverse range of international artists working in painting, sculpture, photography, film, installation, and performance. It reaches beyond art to enable a broader understanding of culture and society in the aftermath of World War II, under the looming fear of total annihilation in the atomic age, and up to the present."
