Colonial Wounds/ Postcolonial Repair, an exhibition co-curated by Maureen Shanahan and Beth Hinderliter, traces the story of French colonialism and colonial violence through the contemporary artwork of Algerian artist Amina Menia (b. 1976) as contextualized by historical materials. Menia’s photography, film and installation works look at how the Algerian monuments from World War I and the era of French colonization (1830-1962) have been reappropriated, demolished or left to disintegrate. Her artwork will be contextualized through World War I era medical illustrations, documentary photography, and film borrowed from the National Museum of Health and Medicine in Silver Spring, Maryland, and from archives in France.

Reception: March 12 (Please note the date change from March 11)

For all events associated with this exhibition, visit Duke Hall Gallery of Fine Art.
