In Small Wars, photographer An-My Lê depicts the sky above a Virginia forest lit up with gunpowder, as history enthusiasts reenact battles from the Vietnam War; and in 29 Palms, American soldiers at a US military base stage their own impending conflicts in Iraq or Afghanistan. Lê creates detached yet poignant images of war's accompanying activities that question how we deal with it before and after the fact < but never during. Tonight, the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE) complements Lê's work by interpreting composer Luigi Nono's experimental 1960s beats, brilliantly weaving together classical and electronic textures with political texts, speeches, and letters from anti-war leaders.

Note: An-My Lê's exhibition runs through Sat 1.6.07 (schedule).
