Andy Robert's Thesis Show: I Witness Murambi, in the L-Shape Gallery CalArt, from 04/23/2011 - 04/30/2011.
This past summer I visited Rwanda; through the CalArts Summer Rwanda Program, where I witnessed Murambi Memorial Site --where more then 45,000 victims were killed during the 1994 Rwandan Genocide. The site is situated in the zone of Turquoise area where French soldiers had their headquarters, launching Operation Turquoise, playing volleyball on top of mass graves containing genocide victims. Now a site which displays 850 preserved bodies as victims of genocide --a memorial to this international tragedy.
