Exhibitions: Yoav Horesh: Aftermath and Messengers: Artists as Witnesses 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM

Exhibitions: Yoav Horesh: Aftermath and Messengers: Artists as Witnesses 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM10:00 AM to 4:00 PM - Paul Creative Arts Center Museum of Art: YOAV HORESH: AFTERMATH | From 2002–2005, Yoav Horesh photographed hundreds of sites in Israel of suicide bombings, months and even years after the destructive blasts. The apparent return to normalcy or the abandonment of spaces reveals a society accustomed to random violence on a massive scale. In an increasingly desensitized environment of war imagery, Horesh challenges us to think about the aftermath. MESSENGERS: ARTISTS AS WITNESSES | Ten contemporary regional and national artists create work that gives voice to others, acting as witnesses by recounting significant events and personal narratives that go beyond media accounts and by doing so acting as harbingers for social change. Themes addressed include incarceration, criminality, state-sanctioned violence, terrorism and evil. Exhibiting artists include: Sanford Biggers, Philip Brou, Daniel Heyman, Alix Lambert, Shaun Leonardo, Dan Mills, Cheryl Pope, Rudy Shepherd, Sheida Soleimani, and Stephen Tourlentes. HOURS: September - May, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.; Thursday from 10 a.m.-8 p.m.; and Saturday from 1-5 p.m.; Closed Sunday.
