Richard Mosse: Beyond Here Lies' Nothin'

Thursday, February 1, 2018 to Sunday, April 15, 2018

Arcadia University Art Gallery is pleased to present “Richard Mosse: Beyond Here Lies Nothin’” an exhibition by Irish artist (b. 1980) based in New York, Berlin, and Ireland. Combining examples from two recent projects documenting the current refugee crisis in Europe (Heat Maps, 2016-17) and the ongoing conflict in eastern Congo (Infra 2010-15), the exhibition explores Mosse’s radical repurposing of military reconnaissance technology. Challenging the conventions of documentary photography, both projects question the rationale of the technologies that yield these compelling and affecting images.

Opening reception:  February 28, 2018
