When Places Speak

January 23 - May 8, 2016

when places speak

Juvenile sex trafficking is attached to places—where youth are recruited, where ads are posted on line, where purchasers meet victims, where law enforcement stops trafficking, and where victims can recover and heal. When Places Speak aims to start dialogues around the places related to sex trafficking and an awareness of the role design plays in this community concern.

Ladakh: A Spirit of Place

January 30, 2016 - May 1, 2016


A visit to the remote region of Ladakh, on the highest plateau of

the Himalyals in Northern India, is a truly monastic experience.

In the midst of this surreal landscape, alongside the political and

militant urgencies of Kashmir, Ladakh has been recently

discovered by an increasing influx of tourists. The boom of tourism

imported modern modes of building and living which raises

concerns of traditions lost. This exhibition represents a glimpse

of the beauty of their traditions and the evidential problems brought

forth by modernization.
