de Swaan work exhibited in Cyprus gallery

Images by Hamilton College’s Lecturer in Art Sylvia de Swaan are included in a contemporary art exhibition, “In Transition” in Limassol, Cyprus, in October.

Sponsored by the Independent Museum of Contemporary Art and the Evagoras and Kathleen Lanitis Foundation, the exhibition focuses on immigration and displacement while “…searching for a contemporary perception of the realities and dilemmas which confront displaced people.”

Among the show’s images is de Swaan’s photograph titled “The War Game”. This work is part of her “Return” series of photographs retracing her family’s travels as refugees at the end of World War II.
