Angola and Guantánamo: Art and Incarceration

204 Jones Hall

Angola and Guantánamo: Art and Incarceration

Guest speakers:
Katrina Andry, printmaker
Edmund Clark, photographer
Deborah Luster, photographer
Esther Whitfield, Brown University

This event brings together Edmund Clark, a British photographer whose work documents spaces of confinement in the detention camps at GTMO, and Katrina Andry and Deborah Luster, two New Orleans-based artists whose work addresses incarceration in Louisiana. Esther Whitfield will discuss Cuban artistic representations of GTMO. We hope the Guantanamo Public Memory Project will provide a complex portrait of GTMO’s history and will raise questions about US-Cuban relations, human rights, national security, refugee policy, and the rule of law in today’s society.

Admission is free and open to the public. If you are interested in a group tour of the exhibit or would like more information, please contact Jana Lipman, jlipman@tulane.edu. For more information about the Guantánamo Public Memory Project, visit http://gitmomemory.org.
