Conflict and Consequence brings together more than seventy original photographs that illuminate the social and political complexities of the human condition during war and its aftermath. The exhibition focuses on the work of twelve international photographers who have dedicated their careers as journalists, documentarians, and artists to depicting the consequences of armed conflict: Dima Gavrysh, Tim Hetherington, Kenneth Jarecke, Jim Lommasson, Susan Meiselas, Richard Mosse, Suzanne Opton, Louie Palu, Andrew Stanbridge, Jonathan Torgovnik, and collaborators Sara Terry and Mariam X. Including objects from Sheldon’s permanent collection, the assembled images represent conflicts waged in Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Nicaragua, Rwanda, and Sierra Leone, among others.

Support for this exhibition and its programming provided by the Philip and Edith Leonian Foundation, Hixson-Lied Endowment, Cooper Foundation, and Sheldon Art Association.
