Oda A La Muerte explored Día de los Muertos—its origins in Mexico as well as its historical and cultural significance there and in the United States. The exhibition showcased work from more than 20 artists—accomplished and emergent—from both sides of the border, who produced work inspired by their own different conceptions of death, using relief prints on linocut and woodcut techniques.
