The Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art (SECCA) presents a multi-media exhibition of the work of Andrew Paul Keiper and Kei Ito, whose collaboration probes the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and their intertwined family histories. Ito’s grandfather witnessed the explosion of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima that killed his family, while Keiper’s grandfather was an engineer who contributed to the effort to develop the bomb. Their collaboration grapples with this history while asserting its pertinence to a contemporary audience living in an increasingly unstable political landscape.
The exhibition, entitled Archives Aflame: Works by Kei Ito and Andrew Paul Keiper, will be on display at SECCA, which is located at 750 Marguerite Drive in Winston-Salem, from March 23 to May 5, 2019. SECCA is free and open to the public Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Thursday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m.
