Three digital media works from Tammam Azzam’s Syrian Museum series will be included in Contemporary Ruins: Resistance to the Spectacular Image; a group show curated by Leah Hartman. Taking place at Columbia University’s Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Art Gallery in New York, the exhibition will focus on the aestheticization of cultural heritage destruction and its reception by the global media in which mediated images of violence and destruction often fall within the intersection of art, propaganda, and documentary.
