Purdue Galleries presents Ethiopian photographer Aïda Muluneh

"Aida Muluneh: Memory of Hope" February 27 through March 31, 2018 Fountain Gallery, 330 Main St., Lafayette
INDIANA---Through her bold, striking images, photographer Aïda Muluneh asks provocative questions about the life that we live as people, as nations, and as beings. Her carefully composed photographs read as poems, using symbols and painted figures to tell stories of the past, present, and future. Work from two recent series will be included: World is 9 and Memory of Hope. Born in Ethiopia in 1974, Aïda Muluneh grew up in Ethiopia, Yemen, England, and Canada. She holds a degree in film from Howard University in Washington D.C. Her work has been shown in South Africa, Mali, Senegal, Egypt, Canada, the United States of America, France, Germany, England, and China, to name a few countries. Purdue University Galleries will present work by photographer Aïda Muluneh in exhibition “Memory of Hope” at the Fountain Gallery through March 31.
