In a State of Emergency? Women, War, and the Politics of Urban Survival

November 30 – December 9, 2006

SAWCC’s ninth annual visual arts show explores issues of conflict, violence, identity, commodification, claustrophobia and the politics of the body using photography, video, installations and animation. The featured South Asian women artists resist and reshape the world on their own terms within their individual idioms, while still maintaining the fragility of their bodies juxtaposed to the beautifully harsh urban realities.
