These stunning works address themes of human resilience and relationships to land, including Standing Rock, radiological contamination, immigration, and homelessness. Also on exhibit are two of Ed’s spectacular recent series, “Laughing Chiefs” and “Alleys of Cortez.” Fox will give a brief talk on her research, which aims to upend traditional approaches to Cold War and nuclear history by centering the narratives and experiences of ordinary people.
