Terrible Beauty: Elephant – Human – Ivory
Ivory is fascinating – and polarizing. As early as 40,000 years ago, humans were using mammoth tusks to create musical instruments and intricate representational figures. In the more recent past, animal tusks have come to symbolize injustice and brutality. Terrible Beauty: Elephant – Human – Ivory addresses this topic with the help of a major programmatic temporary exhibition, a series of discussions and films, a programme of artistic events, and assorted educational activities.
