Summary
Might a work of art move us to temper our more destructive impulses? In what ways do artists' feelings of empathy contribute to works that tackle problematic subjects and address the human condition? Compassion, features three contemporary artists-William Kentridge, Doris Salcedo, and Carrie Mae Weems-whose unique works and experimental methods explore the conscience and the possibility of reconciling past and present while exposing injustice and expressing tolerance for others. By means of film, photo-documentary, and abstract sculpture, each artist in their own distinct style presents a testimony to the human experience and a reminder of the fragility of life.
