AFTER-EFFECTS: BEYOND THE SHADOW OF WAR
CURATED BY LINDA BOND

September 5 - December 20, 2017
Reception: Thursday, October 12, 5:00-8:00pm

For over two decades Linda Bond’s artwork has addressed issues of social concern. Pausing to examine the details of violent events as they unfold, Bond’s work is a personal attempt to both humanize these tragedies and to combat the numbing effects of a media-saturated culture. This exhibition intends to shine light on the effects of war and all those individuals who are inevitably affected. Projects in this exhibition have been supported in part by the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, the Puffin Foundation, the Artist's Resource Trust and the Massachusetts Cultural Council. Linda Bond is a Resident Scholar at the Women’s Studies Research Center of Brandies University. Shows presented in the Human Rights Institute Gallery are designed to educate visitors about their individual rights, and to improve social responsibility while exploring our interconnections as human beings.
