October 9 - January 2, 2022
From the Crow Museum:
“Carolyn Brown and Palmyra: An Ancient City through the Lens is an exhibition of photographs presented by the Edith O’Donnell Institute of Art History of the University of Texas at Dallas, on view at the Crow Museum of Asian Art from October 9, 2021 through January 2, 2022.
Curated by Dr. Michael Thomas, Director of the O’Donnell Institute and Heather Bowling, the Institute’s Research Coordinator, the exhibition features large-scale photographs of Palmyra by Dallas-based photographer Carolyn Brown. Taken during Brown’s 1989 visit to the Syrian desert, her carefully composed images of monumental Roman architectural remains speak to the city’s ancient past and its troubling present. As the world looked on in horror in 2015, the terrorist organization known as ISIS overran the ancient city, committing monstrous attacks on its people, buildings, monuments, and artifacts. In capturing critical details that are now lost forever, Brown’s images provide an invaluable documentation of Palmyra’s priceless cultural heritage.”
