August 26–December 16
Roger Brown Study Collection, 1926 N. Halsted St.
Albrecht Dürer's 1508 study of his left hand as seen in two mirrors evolved into an iconic image of prayer. Today Dürer's drawing appears in a myriad of functional and devotional objects—bookends, nightlights, and salt and pepper shakers—to name a few, and is used to announce a death or sharpen a pencil. This presentation of some 50 objects from the collection of Rolf Achilles and Maral Hashemi reflects Dürer's hands in the hands of an adoring public. Augmented by related Roger Brown paintings, Hands Together inaugurates occasional exhibitions from faculty collections, and the ongoing investigation of objects at the RBSC.
The RBSC is open by appointment. 773.929.2452, firstname.lastname@example.org
