THE ROLE OF LOCAL MEDIA IN WAGING WAR & PEACE

Presented at:
Hallwalls

"It's the worst-kept secret in the world: The Bush administration would like to see regime change in Tehran, and it has prepared plans for military intervention in pursuit of that goal. Whether or not the administration seriously imagines that going to war on Iran is advisable or even feasible, it has been developing the logistics and strategy for some sort of an attack since at least 2004, according to credible reports by journalists and think-tankers around the world—most famously in a series of articles by Seymour Hersh in The New Yorker. A month ago, the PBS news magazine Frontline aired a provocative piece on the escalation of tensions between the Bush administration and the hardliners who control Iran's government. That report will be screened this Tuesday in Hallwalls' Cinema, followed by a panel discussion entitled 'The Role of Local Media in Waging War & Peace' and a 30-minute question-and-answer period with the audience. At issue will be how well local media serve their audience on issues like this, and what journalists and users of the media learned from the runup to the current war in Iraq. This event is presented by the Western New York Peace Center/Peace Action Taskforce, as part of their monthly screening series at Hallwalls" (Geoff Kelly, Artvoice).

Laylah Ali
Paintings and Drawings


Laylah Ali's work explores power dynamics and interpersonal conflict through compositions that position culturally, racially and sexually ambiguous figures in precarious, loaded, and unexpectedly humorous situations. Ali uses concise—even minimal—imagery that is specific in rendering and intent. While there are narratives in Ali's work, they are stories whose open spaces often give them the atmosphere of fables.
