What do historical events mean to communities today? How can different interpretations of the past be reconciled? What role do objects play in piecing together memories of life from decades, or even centuries, ago? These questions are explored through this student-curated exhibit, looking critically at how objects from all over the world are used to tell narratives about the past. The exhibit intentionally challenges the artificial divide between “objects of art” and “objects of history” through the juxtaposition of anthropological museum holdings and digital art in the form of electronic paintings by Julian Semilian, faculty in the UNCSA School of Filmmaking. Admission is free.
