    “Compassion” features three artists — William Kentridge, Doris Salcedo, and Carrie Mae Weems — whose works explore conscience and the possibility of understanding and reconciling past and present, while exposing injustice and expressing tolerance for others. Doris Salcedo’s sculptures and installations embody the silenced lives of the marginalized, from individual victims of violence to the disempowered of the Third World.
