Civil Disobedience On Display At The Menil Collection Through February
A new exhibition called Experiments with Truth: Gandhi and Images of Nonviolence opened this week at the Menil Collection. Houstonia reports the “seed” was planted for this exhibit in the 1960s when Menil Collection director, Josef Helfenstein, first saw an inventory of Mahatma Gandhi’s very few possessions after his assassination in 1948 chronicled in a simple black and white photograph.
The exhibit — which runs through February 1 and is open to the public — displays photographs, artifacts, sculptures and art that speak to the notion of nonviolent protest embodied by Mahatma Gandhi’s life and activism.
In conjunction with the exhibit will be a series of outreach events produced by partnering organizations throughout Houston.
