On September 11 at 3 p.m. in the Patrick Ma Digital Scholarship Lab in the Rockefeller Library, artist Ian Alan Paul, a founder of the Guantanamo Bay Museum of Art and History, will give a talk about the Museum and the exhibit installed in the DSL.

The lecture and exhibit are co-sponsored by the DSL and the John Nicholas Brown Center for Public Humanities and Cultural Heritage.

The exhibit features a digital selection from the Museum’s collection. The fictional Museum, located at the former site of the Guantanamo Bay Detention Camp in Cuba, is an institution dedicated to remembering the U.S. prison which was active between 2002 and 2012 before it was permanently decommissioned and closed.
