Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden
Independence Avenue at 7th Street, SW
3rd Level Floor Plan
More than 70 recent acquisitions and rarely shown works reimagine the extensive permanent collection. Prompted by today’s increasing focus on the material and digital worlds, the exhibition explores the compelling and enigmatic ways in which artists use absence—the loss of body, of physical form or of memory—as a form of artistic expression for more than 70 years.
