Where: Long-Sharp Gallery Long-Sharp Gallery 1 N Illinois St Indianapolis, Indiana 46204

Piers Secunda is a British painter and sculptor who travels to war-ravaged parts of the the Middle East to “capture the texture of geopolitical violence, with a focus on the destruction of culture”. In this exhibit, Secunda superimposes damage from ISIS bullet holes on casts of ancient objects – creating an unsettling impression that the ancient works have been shot and destroyed. Secunda’s process has been called a “carefully crafted record of cultural violence” which “opens a chilling window into the widespread destruction of historical and cultural artwork.”

Piers will travel to Indianapolis from London for this First Friday opening. Please join us to meet the artist and learn about his fascinating work!

Thanks to Conrad Indianapolis for sponsoring this exhibit and the First Friday opening, and to Evan Todd Salon & Spa and PATTERN Magazine for sponsoring the opening, as well!
