The Marathon Bombing Tragedy Anniversary is a diverse survey of student work made in response to the Marathon bombing tragedy.
Utilizing a range of creative approaches from personal documentary, narrative treatments, and experimental film and video, these works from Visual and Media Arts Undergraduate and Graduate students present a multidimensional response to the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing and its aftermath. Their work is a register of the fears and insecurities that tragic events can catalyze, and a testament to the creative achievements of Emerson visual artists who engage with challenging circumstances in an effort to help us all heal and comprehend, both individually and collectively. Programmed by VMA Assistant Professor Paul Turano.
