"Dispatches" gathers and generates artistic responses to the news by 34 contemporary artists and photojournalists. The exhibition at the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art, or SECCA, is open through February 19, 2017 and includes a survey of recent works on current events and the critical issues of our time.
Several Pulitzer Center grantees including photographers Tomas van Houtryve and Sim Chi Yin have work on display. The Pulitzer Center is partnering with SECCA via its NewsArts initiative.
"Dispatches" is divided into five thematic zones: Post-9-11 Realities; Borders and Migrations; Ecological Justice; New Forms of Social Action; and the 2016 US Presidential Election.
The exhibition's public program features performances and artist talks, including one with van Houtryve. Van Houtryve's "Blue Sky Days," part of the "Dispatches" exhibit, was the largest photo portfolio in the history of Harper's magazine.
