Object Lessons Satellite Exhibit
Opens Friday, March 6
|Object Lessons premieres on Friday, March 6, with an opening reception at 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the library’s Washington Ave. Branch. The photo exhibition will be open during branch hours and run through Saturday, April 18.|
Object Lessons was created by Nina Berman, an award-winning documentary photographer, filmmaker, author, and educator from New York City, to bring awareness to the ever-growing issue of sex trafficking in the Capital Region and beyond. The exhibition depicts the evidence used to try and convict sex traffickers, including victims’ clothing and the weapons used to coerce victims into submission. This exhibition will inform the public about the nature of these sex trafficking prosecutions and the brave victims who choose to tell their stories.
To learn more about our partners from this project, please visit their corresponding websites at Albany Center Gallery, the Capital District Women’s Bar Association, and the Albany Public Library. Photo credits to Nina Berman.
