Howard Art Project exhibition: Slowness | Jan 27

As part of the ongoing Howard Art Project exhibition: Slowness, interdisciplinary artist Joanna Tam will discuss her work with Slowness curator: Christopher Thomas Ford. Tam will be discussing her project “107,594”. The title “107,594” refers to the estimated number of Iraqi civilians killed during the course of the US led invasion of Iraq. During the course of one year, Tam documented the basic biographical data of each victim on 3 x 5 index cards. The work is a meditation on time and the sheer breadth and banality of violence.
