Last of Beirut

March 22, 2007

Alumnus Madeline Djerejian (MFA 1997 Photography and Related Media) is presenting work in three exhibitions in New York City and London this March and April. Djerejian’s silent video, The Last of Beirut, weaves together text and images to construct a vision of displacement and loss on the eve of civil war in Lebanon in 1975. The Last of Beirut will be presented in New York in the exhibition “News From Abroad” at the Murray Guy gallery, 453 West 17th Street, through Saturday, April 21. Across the Atlantic, the video is on view at Elastic Residence in Whitechapel, London, in the exhibition “Viewing the Political,” through Sunday, April 15.

Also in London, Djerejian’s photographs of WWI and WWII landscapes, from the series Guardians and Sentries, are on view in the exhibition “Gratuitous Little Weight” at Standpoint Gallery, through Saturday, March 31.
