Gallery Talk: Wendy Pearlman

Saturday, May 26 3:00–5:00 p.m.

Free to the public

Join us in the galleries for a talk by Northwestern University professor Wendy Pearlman, author of We Crossed a Bridge and it Trembled (2017). Based on hundreds of interviews across continents, the book chronicles the Syrian conflict exclusively through the words of displaced Syrians transformed by its unfolding. Pearlman will be signing copies of her book after the talk.

This talk is held in conjunction with Gregory Beals: They Arrived Last Night, a photography exhibition documenting the global refugee crisis on view at LUMA through June 2.
