“Death is a mirror in which the entire meaning of life is reflected.”

Are works of art created in our image a grasp at immortality? Death Is Irrelevant examines this question through the presentation of figurative sculptures from the Marc and Livia Straus Collection. Featuring art created over a forty-year period from seventeen countries, Death is Irrelevant is a contemporary investigation into our timeless inclination to recreate ourselves, explore fragility and mortality, and consider what it means to be alive.
