Ms. Ingberman died Wednesday. Related material—

Symmetry (Wednesday), Design (Thursday), Solomon's Labyrinth (Friday).

See also an essay by John Haber —

"Exit Art may yet offer an alternative: shut them up in the labyrinth, with the Minotaur and, as in Iraq, no Ariadne's thread to guide them out. Jeannette Ingberman and Papo Colo line the space with 'The Labyrinth Wall: From Mythology to Reality,' inviting fifty-one artists to cover its sixty-two panels."

— "Marlene Dumas, The Labyrinth Wall, and Emily Jacir"

Haber  (ibid .) also describes artist Marlene Dumas, a recent winner of a Royal Swedish Academy Schock Prize. For a fellow Schock winner— mathematician Michael Aschbacher— see Thursday's Design.)
