War is for the Living provokes questions about our relationship to a world permeated by endless violations. This exhibition brings together a distinguished group of emerging and established artists whose works provoke questions about the everyday of war, the relationships formed and broken by war, the displacements that people must endure because of war, and the inadvertent histories, technologies, and trajectories that arise from the prevalence of war. The artists include: Tomie Arai, Nina Berman, Allan deSouza, Nancy Hwang, An-My Le, Dinh Q. Lê, Simon Leung, Yoko Ono, Paul Qaysi, Hiroshi Sunairi, and Yoshiaki Kaihatsu.
War is for the Living is on view February 14-March 23, 2013, Tuesday-Saturday, 11AM-5PM.
War is for the Living is supported by the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU, Vilcek Foundation, and Japan Foundation of New York.
