This exhibition project examines and interprets the experience of Katrina on the Gulf Coast. Featuring more than 80 photographs, this thematic exhibition will explore the devastation of cities within the Gulf Coast, as well as life before and after the storm. The focus of the show is to fulfill the promise made by everyone almost immediately after the event which was to not let the impact of this horrific experience be forgotten. The exhibition will invite viewers to recall their own experiences of watching the events unfold on television, and attempt to counter the complacency that has already set in the aftermath of this on-going tragedy and to "re-member" images of the city.
