The bulk of the American army was made up of 19-25 year-old men, who had already experienced the ravages of war and the grief engendered by the sight of lost comrades in battle, but had neither heard of the concentration camps nor of the horrors that were committed inside their gates. Their memories would be forever marked by the atrocities they witnessed. This exhibition discusses the role of the liberators during World War II. Free.

Uncertain Worlds

Ongoing, through 5/03

2:00 pm - 6:00 pm

The aesthetic qualities of the holographic image such as evanescence, transparent volume, emanation of light and dynamic viewing serve Philippe Boissonnet to underscore the precarious nature of the visible itself. Playing with the holographic perceptual phenomenon, and sometimes interactive control systems, he is pointing out the cultural importance of beings' disembodiment and of images' fleetingness in our technologically perceived reality. This selection of his installations, through the last 20 years, destabilizes the viewer's certainties with respect to their concept of the real and its supposed stability. Free.
