Throwback Thursday

A look back at artist Carlos Amorales’s 2008 exhibition at the Museum, “Four Animations, Five Drawings, and a Plague.” It featured this stunning installation, “Black Cloud,” made of thousands of black paper moths. Amorales returns to the Museum on Tuesday, October 21, for the US premiere of his film “The Man Who Did All Things Forbidden,” followed by an artist Q&A and reception. Reserve your free ticket here.

I loved this exhibit. I even wrote a paper on it for a class in modern art.
