YALE CENTER FOR BRITISH ART, NEW HAVEN, CT

September 5th, 2019 to December 8th, 2019

The Ethics of Dust: Trajan's Column will be on view at Yale Center for British Art as part of the exhibition "Unto this Last: Two Hundred Years of John Ruskin" curated by Tara Contractor, Victoria Hepburn, and Judith Stapleton under the supervision of Tim Barringer, Courtney Long, and Matthew Hargraves.
A site-specific installation originally commissioned in 2015 by the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, this giant "cast of a cast" was created using conservation latex, to clean the hollow inside of the cast of Trajan’s Column, removing dust and dirt accumulated over decades in this usually unseen space.
