The Yale Law School Association of New York City -- International Center of Photography event
entitled “Rise and Fall of Apartheid: Photography and the Bureaucracy of Everyday Life”
Time: 6:30-8:30 pm
This landmark exhibition “offers an unprecedented and comprehensive historical overview of the pictorial response to apartheid that has never been undertaken by any other museum. Through its images, this exhibition explores the significance of the 50-year civil rights struggle, from how apartheid defined and marked South Africa’s identity from 1948 to 1994, to the rise of Nelson Mandela, and finally its lasting impact on society.” http://www.icp.org/museum/exhibitions/apartheid
“it’s a grand narrative of stirring sights: ardent faces, agitated bodies, camaraderie, clenched fists, funerals. It’s also a disquisition on the ordinariness of good and evil, on how people in a particular time and place encounter and partake of both and go on with their lives, no matter what.” http://www.nytimes.com/2012/09/21/arts/design/rise-and-fall-of-apartheid-at-center-of-photography.html?_r=0
