Please note: Out of Rubble will be closed on Saturday, April 25, and will resume regular hours on Tuesday, April 28.

The exhibition Out of Rubble reacts to the wake of war — its realities and its representations. The rubble that each war leaves behind shapes today and tomorrow — physically, psychologically and spiritually. Responding to a wide range of violent encounters taking place over four continents, Out of Rubble presents works by seventeen artists and architects from over ten countries who consider its causes and consequences, its finality and future, moving from decimation and disintegration to the possibilities of regeneration and recovery. Featured artists and architects include: Taysir Batniji, Lenka Clayton, Andrew Ellis Johnson, Susanne Slavick, Monica Haller, Sara Pellegrini and DAAR, Simon Norfolk, Jennifer Karady, Heide Fasnacht, Wafaa Bilal, Elaine Spatz-Rabinowitz, Enrique Castrejon, Rocio Rodriguez, elin o’Hara slavick, Osman Khan, Hirokazu Fukawa, Jane Dixon and Samina Mansuri. The exhibition is curated by Susanne Slavick, Andrew W. Mellon Professor of Art at Carnegie Mellon University.

An opening reception will be held on Thursday, April 2 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.

On Thursday, April 30, the curator, Susanne Slavick, will deliver a public lecture on the exhibition. Click here for additional information.
