Opening Reception & Lecture Performance: May 8, 6-9pm
Columbia University’s Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Art Gallery offers a provocative exploration of post-1989 history, memory and the present in work by a young generation of artists from three major blocs: Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union, China, and the Middle East. The tensions of the Cold War era in the ’80s and the critical breaking point of 1989 and its aftermath are a recent history shared by each of the artists in the exhibition all born between the mid-1970s and mid-1980s. The exhibition “Cross-Time Stories: Global Subjectivities After 1989″ focuses on their individual memories and how these shape their understanding of contemporary life.
