Hoffman's work reflects the complicated ways we look at culture and race while also offering detailed and nuanced portraits of individual persons. Conservation and re-installation of the Hoffman works are made possible by a generous gift from Pamela K. and Roger B. Hull. The exhibition is made possible with the support of The Elizabeth Morse Genius Charitable Trust and an anonymous donor. Photo © 2015 Field Museum For tickets, visit
