Conceal & Carry

Monday, April 2, 2018 at 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Parsons East Building, 25 East Gallery, 5th Floor 25 East 13th Street, New York, NY 10003

Conceal and Carry represents a moment of reflection on the individual and cultural accumulation of contemporary national trauma. The exhibition investigates the ways in which sensationalism, tragedy, scale, and violence dictate and inform image making and cultural identity. The early twenty-first century has arrived in its own reckless and blurry sense of identity, one that is rooted in the terminal nature of imperialism and the ever-evolving rapport of terror and documentary. 

Presented by Parsons School of Design.
