Yvette Drury Dubinsky: There and Gone
Bruno David Gallery is pleased to present Yvette Drury Dubinsky's third solo exhibition with the gallery, opening Friday, May 10, 2013. The exhibition titled "There and Gone" is inspired by Dubinsky's intense reaction to the violence and destruction currently happening in Syria and in the Middle East and, presented as a mixed media installation with a group of related smaller works. The exhibition will be on view May 10–June 15, 2013. A catalogue, Yvette Drury Dubinsky: There and Gone, will be published on the occasion of the exhibition.
Dubinsky traveled in Lebanon and Syria in late 2009, exploring astonishing archeological treasures and monuments and befriending two Syrian families. Since then, the historic sites she visited have gone under siege and some have been destroyed. Caught in the crossfire of Syria's war, one family was forced from their Damascus home and is now living as refugees in a mountain village. The other family, from Aleppo, fled to Turkey. Without income, the two families face a dramatic change from the middle class lifestyle they led when Dubinsky met them.
