Curatorial Statement
“Memento Mori,”  is a Latin term meaning to remember that death is a part of life. Our current exhibit seeks to explore the inevitability of death and its impact on all of us. Throughout the pandemic, we’ve needed to let go of old ways of thinking and being in the world, to adopt new ways of living. Death, in all its forms, can be an opportunity to adapt, to appreciate, to honor and value the lives we are currently living. Death can be a door, a light shining upon more healthy ways of being present in the world. Death reminds us that each moment of life is sacred.
