JANA EULER in Collection 1980s–Present | Gallery 215

Euler's 2021 work Morecorn 5 is on view at MoMA's gallery 215, in a group presentation of works titled "Clandestine Knowledge."

From the Museum:


Across generations and geographies, women have informally passed on clandestine forms of knowledge—whether life-sustaining wisdom like foraging and gardening or psychic explorations into other dimensions—through whispered words, material objects, images, and, more recently, the Internet. The need to do so covertly came from the danger women throughout history risked when these practices, often tools for self-empowerment, were considered a threat to reigning patriarchal and religious orders—as witnessed, for instance, during the European witch hunts of the Early Modern period. The practice of spiritualism and alternative ways of understanding the world find new form and relevance in the works assembled here, which span from the early 20th century to the present and reference imagery from the natural world, mythology, and the occult.
