“Afghanistan: Unordinary Lives” runs Oct. 28-Nov. 12 at the Bagwell Center for Media and Art, located on the Hardin Valley Campus, 10915 Hardin Valley Road. Gallery hours are Monday-Friday, 10 a.m.-6:30 p.m. Admission is free, and the gallery is always open to the public.
“Bringing cultural awareness and understanding to students and faculty is an important component of the mission of TnCIS,” said Tracey Bradley, TnCIS executive director. “TnCIS is honored to be a part of this extraordinary exhibit portraying the lives of civilians in Afghanistan.”
The exhibit features the work of Slovenian artist Manca Juvan, who spent months in Afghanistan doing field research into the civil society of the country.
“Stories on the lives of ordinary Afghans caught in this endless conflict of interest and the ongoing struggle for money, power, and overall control remind us what the real images of war and poverty—of lives far from ordinary—look like,” Juvan said.
