Throughout history artists have used symbols such as skulls, decaying flowers and
clocks to reference death and the fleeting nature of earthly life. This juried exhibition
explores concepts surrounding mortality, life, renewal, inner darkness, and cultural
and historical understandings of death. Organized in conjunction with Art After Dark
Death on October 28, this special two-week exhibition is a visual complement to its
dark tableaux of programming. Memento Mori is a Latin phrase that translates to
“remember your mortality,” and was intended to inspire artists to meditate on their
understanding of death and what becomes of us all.

OMA had an amazing response to the Memento Mori call to artists. Out of 275 works
submitted, 33 pieces were selected by 29 different artists. Participating artists include
Dan Allen, Fernando Apodaca, Sue Averell, Mike Calaway-Fagen, Shay Davis, Arnaud

Glick, David Gough, Jim Hornung, Ruth Jameson, David Lozeau, Andrew Marino,
Elizabeth Mead, George Papciak, Robert Pendleton, Paula Riddle, Jiela Rufeh, Denise
Sarram, Scott Saw, Greg Smirnov, Heidi Tailefer, Emma Webster, Aron Wiesenfeld,
