When mothers left babies at London's Foundling Hospital in the mid-18th century, the Hospital often retained a small token as a means of identification, usually a piece of fabric. Each scrap of material reflects the life of a single infant and that of its absent parent. Organized by the Foundling Museum and curated by John Styles, this will be the only American venue for this exhibition opening May 25.
