LINCOLN, NEB.- Sheldon Museum of Art brings together more than seventy original photographs for Conflict and Consequence: Photographing War and Its Aftermath, a new exhibition that illuminates the social and political complexities of the human condition during and after armed conflict.

On view from January 18 through May 7, Conflict and Consequence focuses on the work of twelve international photographers who have dedicated their careers as journalists, documentarians, and artists to depicting the consequences of war: Dima Gavrysh, Tim Hetherington, Kenneth Jarecke, Jim Lommasson, Susan Meiselas, Richard Mosse, Suzanne Opton, Louie Palu, Andrew Stanbridge, Jonathan Torgovnik, and collaborators Sara Terry and Mariam X.

“War and photography have been inextricably linked since the birth of the medium more than 150 years ago,” said Todd Tubutis, exhibition curator and Sheldon’s associate director. “In conveying the stories of individuals who have experienced the physical and mental brutality of armed conflict, these photographers reveal unseen consequences of war that can persist for years.”

Including photographs from Sheldon’s permanent collection, the assembled images represent conflicts waged in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Rwanda, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Sierra Leone, and Nicaragua.

The museum will present free, public programs in conjunction with Conflict and Consequence. Artist Jim Lommasson will discuss his ongoing work What We Carried, a collaborative photo-based project with Iraqi refugees in the U.S., on March 7 at 6 p.m.

Anne Wilkes Tucker, curator emerita of photography at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, will moderate a panel discussion with photographers Susan Meiselas and Sara Terry about their perspectives on working in conflict zones, from the turmoil of insurrection to the struggle for forgiveness and peace, on March 16 at 6 p.m.

Support for Conflict and Consequence and its programming is provided by the Phillip and Edith Leonian Foundation, Hixson-Lied Endowment, and Cooper Foundation. Additional support is provided by the Sheldon Art Association, Nebraska Arts Council and Nebraska Cultural Endowment.
