Ann Messner: oracle
These are violent times—when collective memory swirls. oracle, Ann Messner’s photo installation, speaks to our collective memory. The viewer is surrounded by its evidence in the form of large black-and-white digitally printed photographs that wrap around the Main Gallery. The images are drawn from the archives of the public lives of Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., and Malcolm X, three leaders who were violently assassinated. Using the camera as an extension of the mind’s eye, Messner has imbued these 57 ghostly images with a hauntingly poetic quality, turning them into a compelling narrative on silence. In the North Gallery, Messner’s accompanying sculptural installation, ghost, speaks further to the materiality of silence.

Before the Doors Closed: The UN in North China After WWII
Gay Dillon Lund traveled with her husband during his tenure as United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administrator in North China from 1946 through 1948. Her black- and-white photographs document conditions in North China immediately before the establishment of the People’s Republic of China and the relief efforts by a fledgling UN. Commissioner Harry Lund’s commentaries accompany the photographs and amplify the contrast between the UN’s inherently political mission and local conditions in the liberated areas.
