Memento Mori: Erika Diettes In Conversation With Anne Tucker says
Join HCP for an evening of lively conversation between Erika Diettes and Anne Wilkes Tucker as they discuss Erika's latest book, Memento Mori: Testament to Life published by George F. Thompson Publishing.

Erika and Anne will be signing books at HCP on March 28th, from 6:00pm-8:00pm. Books will be available for sale online prior to the event, and that evening at HCP.

MEMENTO MORI: Testament to Life presents three bodies of work in two volumes housed in a transparent slipcase. The first volume contains the installation shots of the work in cathedrals, churches, museums, exhibitions, and memorials in Latin America, Europe, Australia, and the United States. The second volume contains the plates of the three series: Drifting Away/Rio Abajo, Relics/Relicarios, Shrouds/Sudarios.

Diettes’s poignant artist statement, as well as an essay by renowned Mexican scholar Ileana Diéguez on “Images in Mourning,” and an insightful conversation between Diettes and Anne Wilkes Tucker, the former curator of photography at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, explore the social, political, and personal implications of the work. MEMENTO MORI is a significant resource in contemporary Latin American studies, as well as for social anthropologists, human rights workers, and those wanting to understand at a very basic level the human cost of terrorism.

This event is free and open to the public.
