Exhibit: Elegy To A Uyghur Dreamscape
Photography exhibition depicting everyday life in Xinjiang, China’s westernmost region. The photographs, taken by Lisa Ross, depict beds and their occupants outside in the open air. Sleeping outdoors is a traditional means to keep cool in the hot desert climate for many Uyghurs, Xinjiang’s Muslim-majority ethnic group. This way of life, however, is rapidly disappearing under the Chinese government’s mass detentions of many of the region’s residents.
The exhibit is co-sponsored by the Harvard University Committee on Inner Asian and Altaic Studies, Davis Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies, Fairbank Center for Chinese Studies, and the Harvard Asia Center Arts Initiative; with support from the Fund Committee, Office of the Dean of Arts and Humanities
