poster for “Re-Framing History” Exhibition

This event has ended.

The context surrounding an image, or its isolation without context, addresses the question of how the framing and re-framing of images influences our understanding of what we see and more broadly, of history. This exhibition brings together Sarah Charlesworth, Juan Manuel Echavarría, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Alfredo Jaar, Emily Jacir, Susan Meiselas, and Krzysztof Wodiczko, who demonstrate exceptional moral and formal rigor in their analysis of contemporary reality.
Each artist in Re-Framing History exemplifies a global awareness of history and the powerful responsibility of images in their individual practices. As pictorial representation becomes less trustworthy, the ways in which artists use imagery, modified or original, helps us to understand histories and cultures and examine the values and perceptions in society.
