Organized by Patricia Marshall, who has played an influential role in the formation of the collection, this international exhibition brings together works within four thematic sections: migration and liberty; the human body; its environment; and the irrepressible and forever incomplete passage of time.


Through the works of more than 40 international artists, On the Razor’s Edge approaches these urgent issues faced in the contemporary world and the precariousness of life within it. Together, On the Razor’s Edge acts as a meditation on these struggles as individual, a society, and as part of the world and time in which we live together.
