Bearing Witness: Four Days in West Kingston Opens November 18, on display through July 15, 2018 In May 2010, the “Tivoli Incursion,” a standoff between Jamaican security forces and a local gang leader wanted for extradition by the United States government, resulted in the death of at least 75 civilians in West Kingston on the island of Jamaica. This new exhibition—part art installation, part memorial, and part call to action—sheds light on those events through compelling video and audio footage featuring firsthand accounts of people directly impacted by the violence. Dr. Deborah Thomas, the R. Jean Brownlee Term Professor of Anthropology at the University of Pennsylvania, is curator of the exhibition. Junior “Gabu” Wedderburn of AV Productions and Deanne M. Bell, University of East London, are exhibition collaborators. First floor Merle-Smith Gallery West.
