The New Way of War: the Expansion of Drones and Seeking Sanctuary

One of a Kind Monoprints of Archival Commercial Foil and Collage

URI-EICHEN Gallery hosts an exhibit about the expanding use of drones. On our border, in other countries, and here at home, drones have posed a real threat to privacy, to freedom, and as a weapon of war. The monoprints on display, about drone use in war and here in the U.S. explore the growing use of the weapon and surveillance drone. Drone victims speak of seeking sanctuary of a cloudy day somewhere in a country targeted by the U.S. so that the drones cannot fly or of immigrants crossing the Mexican / U.S. border seek sanctuary in America, only to be stopped by the observance of a drone, piloted thousands of miles away.

Following the Box - an Evening with Jerry Zbiral and Alan Teller facebook.com/URIEICHENGallery2101Halsted

Friday, Oct. 24, 7pm-9pm

A chance discovery of a box of photographs from India in 1945 launches a quest to identify the photographer and to the creation of new artworks with both American and Indian artists. Alan Teller and Jerri Zbiral recount a fascinating cross-cultural journey, following Ghurka soldiers in rural India and passionate discussions with West Bengali artists as they draw inspirations from an outsider’s vision of 70 years ago.
