It is a contemporary art exhibition focusing on artists who examine issues related to the boundaries of Israel and Palestine. Through photography, video, and sculpture, the exhibition looks at the complex social issues and loss or erosion of personal and cultural histories that have been taking place due to the difficult circumstances in this region of the world. The exhibition is part of the Zones project, initiated in 2011 by Weatherspoon Curator of Exhibitions, Xandra Eden to reveal the ways that contemporary art and artists can create a platform to discuss circumstances in far away countries and their impact upon local and regional communities. A Zone Team, consisting of local artists, community leaders, museum board members, and university faculty and students, has served as an advisory committee to identify effective ways to present the content of the exhibition and accompanying issues for Weatherspoon audiences.
