The Amelie A. Wallace Gallery at SUNY Old Westbury is pleased to present "Violated Bodies: New Languages for Justice and Humanity." The exhibition presents powerful images created by six international artists who have reacted to the subject of violence against women. Included in the exhibition is the "Silent Tears Project" by the Blur Projects artists, the sculpture of Simone Kestelman, and the multimedia work of aleXsandro Palombo and Cat Del Buono. The exhibition, organized by Kyunghee Pyun and Deborah Saleeby-Mulligan, two art historians/art critics based in higher-education institutions, serves as a comment on the #MeToo Movement. The exhibition aims to present artistic and creative approaches to the painful issues surrounding domestic violence and violence against woman in general. It also draws attention to a lesser-known realm of disabled bodies that have been caused by domestic violence.
