The Past is a Foreign Country: François-Xavier Gbré

28 August - 9 October 2015
Cantor Fitzgerald Gallery, Haverford College, USA

“The Past is a Foreign Country” is the first solo exhibition in North America by the Ivorian artist François-Xavier Gbré, whose photographs survey relics of the built environment, from the ruins of colonial-era monuments to the futurist symbols of the cosmopolitan city. The exhibition features site-specific installations of immersive wallpaper prints and a chronicle of more than fifty buildings and civic structures throughout West Africa and France.
