CCR is proud to collaborate with Gallery 102, Witness Against Torture, and the National Coalition to Protect Civil Freedoms, on the The Tea Project with Ghaleb Al-Bihani & Djamel Ameziane.
Tea Project artists Amber Ginsburg and Aaron Hughes work collaboratively to uncover moments of beauty, poetics and shared humanity within little known military histories. Taking as its starting point the curious story of a Guantánamo Bay guard who fell in love with the drawings carved on Styrofoam cups by detainees, the Tea Project is an ongoing series of exhibitions and performances that offers counter-narratives to disrupt the numbing effects of war and detention.
The exhibit will also include works from CCR clients Ghaleb Al-Bihani and Djamel Ameziane, created while both were detained at Guantánamo. Shown for the first time will be a substantial collection of the more than 200 works by Ghaleb, who has been detained without charge in Guantánamo since 2002 and has been cleared for transfer since 2014.
For more information, including a schedule of events related to the exhibit, visit GWU's exhibit website. The gallery is open Monday-Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
