About: Durham County Library will host Juline Chevalier and Sumathi Ramaswamy for a presentation and slide lecture on the Nasher Museum of Art’s current exhibit, Lines of Control: Partition as a Productive Space. The program will take place at 7 p.m. on Monday, November 11, at the Southwest Regional Library, 3605 Shannon Rd.

Lines of Control: Partition as a Productive Space explores the creation and maintenance of borders, both physical as well as psychological, through the works of artists primarily from South Asia. These artists focus on the idea of partition as a productive space – where nations are made through forging new identities and relationships, reconfiguring memory and creative forgetting, re-writing history and the making of myths, and through the creation and patrolling of borders. The exhibit is on view until February 2, 2014.

Juline Chevalier is the Curator of Education at the Nasher Museum of Art, and Sumathi Ramaswamy is Professor of History at Duke University.

This program is sponsored by Durham Library Foundation. For more information, contact Joanne Abel at 919-560-0268 or visit durhamcountylibrary.org.
