New Exhibition Opens in Media Gallery
The Media Gallery in the Department of Communication Studies proudly presents the exhibition Haiti : Holdup by Darren Ell.
A photographer, activist and journalist, Ell produces photographic work dedicated to human rights and social justice issues. Ell’s commitment to the responsibility of bearing witness and using art as a tool for social transformation is evident in this provocative installation. In Ell’s words “Since all of my projects focus on victimized groups of people, I involve myself in their struggle as an artist-citizen. During the two to three years it takes to complete a project, I engage in journalism and activism to bring their cause to a larger audience. This in turn generates interest in my artwork.”
Haiti : Holdup runs from January 13th until
February 26th April 2nd, in the Media Gallery, CJ Building 1.419, located at Concordia University’s Loyola campus, 7141 Sherbrooke Street West, Montreal.
Gallery hours are Monday-Thursday 9-4:45 pm and Friday 9-12:45 pm.
