This spring, a new gallery debuted at Boston College. On the third floor of the O’Neill Library, a selection of Professor Charles A. Meyer’s photography serves as the thoughtful and awe-inspiring inaugural exhibition for the new Level Three Gallery.
In Witnessing Conflict: Photographs from the Balkans, Kosovo, South Africa, and Northern Ireland, Meyer takes a photographic survey of regions where people of differing ethnic backgrounds or religious persuasions are in conflict. The series examines perspectives of peace, reconciliation, and restorative justice among the perpetrators, victims, and/or survivors of these conflicts – all of whom have come to understand the necessity for reconciliation.
Sponsored by the Dean of the College of Arts & Sciences, Institute for Liberal Arts, Arts and Social Responsibility, Arts Council, and the O’Neill Library, Witnessing Conflict will be on display until September 14th, 2011 at the Level Three Gallery in O’Neill Library during the library’s open hours. As with any art exhibition at Boston College, access is free and open to the public.
