FRANCE---In difficult times, we look to the past for comfort and clarity. In the wake of France's deadliest attacks since World War II, Corita Kent's late 1960s and early 1970s silkscreens promoting pacifism and tolerance take on an unexpected urgency. Planned well before terrorists killed 130 Parisians, Galerie Allen’s exhibition devoted to the late American artist, activist, educator, and former Catholic nun, now feels eerily prescient. [link]
