Just like the river in flux described by the Greek philosopher Heraclitus, a society is diverse and always moving.
“A River in Silent Flux” captures the voices of Georgia’s diverse ethnic and religious groups. The multimedia exhibition showcases the work of renowned Georgian and international photographers, as well as the work of students from the Georgian Institute of Public Affairs’ Multimedia Lab, using photography, video, and sound to depict Georgia’s reality as a diverse and vibrant society.
The exhibition depicts the lives of members of minority groups captured by artists ranging from internationally-renowned photographers to ethnic minority students just learning to use photography to portray the world as they see it.
The exhibition is organized within USAID/Georgia’s #WeAreSakartvelo campaign.
The exhibition consists of photographs, as well as video and sound installation.
