From the Field to the Archive – Nicaragua to Kurdistan

Thursday, October 25, 2012 at 5:30
Free and open to the public

“Co-sponsored by the University of Arizona School of Art’s Visiting Artists, Scholars and Exhibitions (VASE) Program, Susan Meiselas will present two seminal projects: Nicaragua and Kurdistan. Her work in Nicaragua spans 25 years, from the popular insurrection to a film that rediscovers the people in her photographs to an installation that brought images back to the landscape where they were first made. The Kurdistan project evolved from documenting the evidence of genocide and exile of the Kurdish people, to gathering a visual history that portrayed their desire for a homeland. Both bodies of work will be shown as they were presented in magazines, books and exhibition form.”
