October 4, 2013 - December 14, 2013

Valerie Hird, Installation view

Organized by Alexander Campos, Executive Director

Through the text and images of the diaries of five women-four from the Middle East, and one from the artist, an American-this exhibition intimately explores themes of religion, cultural difference, and politics. The diaries are presented on a series of five monitors, accompanied with music chosen by the diarist, and an interactive blog option that allows viewers to respond and comment.
