Pictures at an Exhibition presents images of one notable show every weekday.

Today’s show: “Teresa Margolles: Ya Basta Hijos de Puta” is on view at PAC Pavilion of Contemporary Art in Milan through Sunday, May 20. The solo exhibition presents 14 installation works by the Mexican artist, whose work often seeks to memorialize those who have died from violent deaths, particularly the lives of trans sex workers. (Margolles was recently shortlisted for the Guggenheim’s 2018 Hugo Boss Prize.)
