(UN) Governed Spaces

20141023-152907-1000x600

(UN) Governed Spaces in a new exhibit at Usdan Gallery that combines art and anthropology to examine the Bagram Military Airbase in Afghanistan. It explores the conflicting narratives surrounding the base while asking viewers to question their pre-conceived ideas of the country. It invites the viewer to attempt to discover the “truth” for themselves, if such a “truth” even exists. Check out the online version of the exhibit to see the art, including some original work by Brianna Morel and your’s truly!

The Gallery is open every weekday from 2-5
