The latest challenging exhibition from the Annenberg Space for Photography examines the real and imagined barriers that have separated societies and ideas for centuries, from the Roman Empire to the U.S.-Mexico border. Works from over 70 artists and photographers chronicle physical barriers like the Berlin Wall and the Western Wall, but you’ll also find works that branch outside of geopolitics and address anything from penitentiaries to plain-old aesthetically pleasing surfaces. The exhibition is broadly divided into six themes: delineation, defense, deterrent, the divine, decoration and the invisible. In tandem with the exhibition, the Annenberg will mount its first public art installation, Light the Barricades.
“W|ALLS: Defend, Divide, and the Divine”
