Aftermaths is a group exhibition featuring artists who point to the bludgeoning effects of Western imperialism on the world, and the cultural phenomena that linger long after its initial encounters. Focusing largely on different approaches to archives of photography and film, the exhibition explores homologous aesthetic tactics employed by artists with attachments to Latin America and the Arab world. Invested in postcolonial politics and ongoing struggles for liberation, the projects by Astro Escudero (Chicago, IL), Rami George (Philadelphia, PA), Gonzalo Reyes Rodriguez (Minneapolis, MN), and Sanaz Sohrabi (Montreal/Chicago, IL) help us understand how images have been used both to suppress and to bolster people’s freedom and autonomy.
