GAINESVILLE, FLA.- Aftermath: The Fallout of War—America and the Middle East, organized by the Harn Museum of Art at the University of Florida, brings together the work of twelve international photographers and artists offering a closer look at armed conflict through images of refugees, loss, history, environmental dangers, and veterans from the U.S. and Middle East. The exhibition is on view from Aug. 16 to Dec. 31, 2016. Artists in the exhibition are Lynsey Addario, Jananne Al-Ani, Jennifer Karady, Gloriann Liu, Rania Matar, Eman Mohammed, Farah Nosh, Suzanne Opton, Michal Rovner, Stephen Dupont, Ben Lowy, and Simon Norfolk.

Supported by prestigious grants from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts, the exhibition includes ninety photographs, two videos and an educational touch table, each depicting the conditions, and voices, of people and environments caught in war’s wake, from Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Palestine, Israel and America. Together the images in Aftermath urge a reflection on loss, offer a comparison of the past in relation to the present, and encourage visitors to ask what the future may hold.

“Aftermath shows life and loss of many kinds, its lingering physical and emotional effects, and hope-filled survival tactics. In these, we are all susceptible and connected,” says Carol McCusker, Harn Curator of Photography. “Each photographer claims an oblique, moral imperative that cautions viewers against binary thinking (us/them, good/bad), urging instead a wider consciousness and compassion toward the repercussions for all involved.”

Aftermath: The Fallout of War—America and the Middle East is organized by the Harn Museum of Art and curated by Carol McCusker, Curator of Photography at the Harn Museum of Art. It will travel to the Gund Gallery at Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio from January to April 2017; and The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota, affiliated with Florida State University, from September 2017 to January 2018.
