Contemporary artist Jim Campbell uses technology to filter images of daily life, mediating the audience’s encounter with his subjects and amplifying the flow of time and memory. While many of Campbell’s public projects have been physically sweeping in scale, this exhibition focuses on his more intimate works, placing them in dialogue with the permanent collection of the Anderson Collection to create new visual and sensory experiences.

The Melancholy Museum: Love, Death, and Mourning at Stanford

CANTOR ARTS CENTER
ONGOING IN THE STANFORD FAMILY GALLERY.

The Melancholy Museum is a reinstallation of objects in the Stanford Family Galleries in conjunction with the 125th anniversary of the museum. It includes over 700 objects collected by Leland Stanford Jr. and his parents. These items tell the story of the culture of grief that was very much a part of the Gilded Age that the Stanford family inhabited. The death masks of all three family members are on display, as is a portrait of young Leland, framed by fabric drapes, evoking the mourning customs of the period.
