Watson Institute, 111 Thayer Street 

Fractured Spaces: Stories of Resistance and Resilience is a three-part photo exhibit focusing on communities disrupted and dislocated by political and cultural conflict: Iraqis living with daily bombings, IED attacks, and the dismantling of their country’s infrastructure; Afghan Northern Alliance soldiers, exiles at home, seizing the military moment to take back their country from the Taliban and defending remote, isolated mountain peaks; 90,000 Tibetans living as political refugees in the Himalayan foothills of Dharamsala, India, with their leader, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and striving to maintain core pieces of the Tibetan culture they left behind when they fled their homeland five decades earlier; and a small group of Pakistani women, so-called “social corruption bombs,” locked together in a government safe house for “endangered women and children.” These situations are radically different in detail and texture, but each paints a layered portrait of human resilience.

Produced with generous support from the Brown Arts Initiative.
