In/Humanity: Combat and War in Art

January 21 – May 12, 2023

War and combat are inextricably part of the human experience, and art helps us make sense of the ways such conflict brings out the worst—and sometimes the best—in us. This exhibition, in conjunction with the WVU class “The Holocaust in East European Literature and Film,” brings together objects in the Art Museum’s collection for viewers to consider how creative expression in any medium helps us to both understand and reckon the violence of war and combat that permeates our world.

Co-curated by the inaugural Art Museum of WVU Faculty Fellow, Lisa Di Bartolomeo, Ph.D., WVU Department of World Languages, Literature, and Linguistics, and Robert Bridges, Curator, Art Museum of WVU.
