Rwanda, 1994-2014: Seven Photographers Exhibit Information:

RWANDA, 1994 - 2014 brings together more than two dozen works by leading photographers and conceptual artists who were in Rwanda at the time of the genocide or else who have visited the nation since. Powerful images in black and white by Fazal Sheikh and Robert Lyons suggest insights into a broad spectrum of concerns from the 1990s: from representations of human cruelty, to images attesting to individuals’ determination to survive amidst scarcity, to acts of retribution and justice. Alfredo Jaar’s installation Six Seconds deploys a single photograph taken in Rwanda to create a highly impactful experience. Other photographers who have returned to Rwanda in the two decades since 1994 form yet another critical dimension of this project. Large color prints by Paige Stoyer, Michal Safdie, Riccardo Gangale, and Vanessa Vick provide a nuanced view of the changes still taking place in Rwanda. Taken together, the photographic imagery displayed at USD reminds us of the significance of this humanitarian crisis, as well as its painful aftermath, and causes us to ponder the peacetime solutions at work within the region.

Admission is free but registration is requested. For questions, please contact Megan Theriault at 619.260.7618 or mtheriault@sandiego.edu.
