The Human Rights Institute Gallery at Kean University welcomes Linda Bond’s exhibition After-Effects: Beyond the Shadow of War (Sept 5 – Dec 20, 2017). Bond’s art work exemplifies the Institute’s longstanding efforts to promote the awareness of human rights issues and violations across the globe. Our obligation to teach, to educate and most importantly, to act on behalf of the powerless is beautifully expressed in this extensive body of work. Included in this ten year retrospective is her One to One project, a collaboration with women in Afghanistan. The project highlights the importance of educating women worldwide – especially in conflict areas – as a means of stabilizing and empowering communities. Other compelling works addressing issues of war and unrest are examined in drawings, prints, collages, 3D installations and videos.
