Description: I, you, we: three very commonplace words. These pronouns -- with all their implied complexities of meaning -- provide an unexpected guide for assessing the works of art from the 1980s and early 1990s in the Museum's collection. What becomes apparent in this survey of paintings, sculpture, drawings, prints, and photographs is how the personal, social, and collective issues and concerns of the artists of this time are still relevant several decades later.
