Connections: Jim Neel / Karen Graffeo

Exhibition Website

Nov 13 2016 - Mar 19 2017

Graffeo’s documentary photographs present a compelling portrait of the inhabitants of Roma (Gypsy) refugee encampments, caravans, slums, and housing projects in Europe. Neel’s evocative ceramic sculptures address the horrific effects of war on children through over-sized and fragmented objects of childhood that appear to have been extracted from a disaster zone. The work of both stems from immersive firsthand experiences in Europe and the Middle East and seeks to bring deeper awareness to important humanitarian issues largely ignored by the West.
