BLOG / When we encounter a work of art by Dario Robleto, we are drawn in with our senses, right away. And when we read the accompanying label, well, a spontaneous little symposium will inevitably take place with whoever happens to be standing nearby. How can art be useful? How can art connect humans through the ages? We are thrilled to share a recent On Being radio interview in which Dario talks about "how objects — in life and in culture — can become meditations on war, love, time and healing." More.
