> DESCRIPTION

18th Street Arts Center concludes our 2008 exhibition series, The Future of Nations, with War as a Way of Life. Curated by 18th Street Artistic Director Clayton Campbell, we are proud to present a stellar group of international and Californian visual artists, many of whom are contributing works which will be seen for the first time. War As a Way of Life examines the phenomenology of how people who are exposed to long-term effects of war or conflict are transformed. Using photography, video, mixed media, and painting, the artists look at how war, which is either abroad, in our own neighborhoods, or even in our families, is affecting future generations perceptions of themselves and their communities.
