Currency/Exchange Exhibition and Closing Reception

October 30, 2009

New Image

Currency / Exchange showcases work made by Corcoran photography students in El Salvador while enrolled in the seminar and travel course International Experience / Transnational Identity, taught by Muriel Hasbun, with the collaboration of Susan Sterner.

Students Kathleen Altemus, Julie Carrasco, Nick Kirkpatrick, Erika Nizborski, Jenny Yang and Michelle Yo learned about the history and culture of the smallest Central American country and its transnational community in the Washington, D.C. area while exploring contemporary issues of migration, diaspora and cultural identity. The photographs of Currency / Exchange speak to the experience of translating a culture and attest to the currency of images in the making of a cultural landscape.

Please join us for the closing reception during FotoWeek DC on Thursday, November 12, 2009 from 6-8 p.m. in Gallery 31.

The exhibition runs from October 21 through November 15, 2009.
