A Handful of Dust is a speculative history of the 20th century, tracing a visual journey through the imagery of dust from aerial reconnaissance, wartime destruction, and natural disasters, to urban decay, domestic dirt, and forensics, via abstraction and conceptual art. The exhibition features works by over 30 artists and photographers including John Divola, Marcel Duchamp, Walker Evans, Mona Kuhn, Man Ray, Gerhard Richter, Sophie Ristelhueber, Aaron Siskind, Shomei Tomatsu, Jeff Wall, and Nick Waplington alongside magazine spreads, press photos, postcards, and film clips. Curated by David Campany.
