Dead Reckoning: an installation for Refugee Week
‘I realised that I had to make some work to bear witness to the loss of life and turn the spotlight back to the human beings behind the statistics.’ Artist Bern O'Donoghue’s work ‘Dead Reckoning’ uses data collected by the International Organisation for Migration to examine myths about people who are either displaced, or on the move. Read more about the moving story behind her work in this new blog post. You can see her work on display in the Museum this Sunday, part of our free #RefugeeWeek event.

"Cypresses" was painted in late June 1889, shortly after Van Gogh began his yearlong stay at the asylum in Saint-Rémy. Vincent van Gogh (Dutch 1853-1890) | Cypresses | 1889 | http://met.org/2tyKe39
