Time Out says

Inspired by the 2015 mass shooting in Charleston, South Carolina, An-My Lê's ongoing photography series 'Silent General' documents the current chapter in the United States's relationship with racism, immigration, history and border control. Born in Saigon, the photographer's work includes images showing the statues of secessionist generals Robert E. Lee and P.G.T. Beauregard concealed in temporary wooden housing away from the public. Also on display will be '29 Psalms', an earlier project chronicling the US Marine Corps training camp in the Mojave Desert, where they rehearsed combat missions in Iraq and Afghanistan.
