100 Faces of War Experience:
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

 

Artist Matthew Mitchell, from Amherst, Massachusetts, will present a talk entitled “100 Faces of War Experience: Portraits and Words of Americans Who Served in Iraq and Afghanistan” on Tuesday, September 26 at 7:00 p.m. in the Northborough Free Library’s meeting room.  This epic project, which was constructed over the course of 9 years in Western Massachusetts is set to tour nationally with Smithsonian Traveling Exhibitions in 2018.

The focus of this presentation will be to chronicle the process of creation of this exhibition, which involved nearly one hundred face to face encounters between the artist and a cross section of people who travelled from America into the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.  These encounters between two strangers: the artist and the participant, lasted from one hour to 16 hours.  As such, this process can teach us something about how to bridge the cultural gap between civilians and veterans.  

The presentation will also discuss how the 100 Faces project can be used to spur productive and meaningful conversations about the nature of the person experience of  the wars in Afghanistan.  The 100 Faces project has been used by trauma councilors in the VA to help reticent veterans suffering from PTS to discuss their experiences and it is often used by family members to start conversations with veterans of many eras. 

Whether you are a civilian wishing to communicate with veterans or a veteran wishing to deepen the kind of dialogue you are having with civilians, the 100 Faces project can serve as a bridge to help you cross the cultural divide. 

In the 100 Faces project each participant who met the artist was asked to write something about themselves.  These unedited and undirected statements are shown next to the portraits in the exhibition.  These words are powerful and often contradictory views of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.  This multi perspective format has something in it to engage every viewer.

The complete exhibition can be seen on line at http://100facesofwarexperience.org.

One portrait created during the process of making the 100 Faces project will be on view at the presentation.  It is what the artist refers to as a “Silent Portrait.”  During the course of the 100 Faces project several veterans agreed to have their portrait painted but never were able to fulfill the requirement of deciding on words to go with their portrait. 

This talk is part of a local effort to try to bring the 100 Faces of War Experience exhibition home to Central or Western Massachusetts.

Prior to the Smithsonian Traveling Exhibition, 100 Faces was shown at the National Veterans Art Museum in Chicago, before the U.S. Congress, and one portrait was shown at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington DC.  Matt Mitchell has been awarded the Western New England Public Radio Arts and Culture Award for his work on 100 Faces of War Experience.

No registration is required and refreshments will be served.
