In conjunction with this juried exhibition, there will also be a presentation of a selection of works from the Abu Ghraib series by world-renowned artist Fernando Botero, which were donated to BAM/PFA in recognition of the institutions’ historic role in the arena of human rights. Four works from the series can also be seen at Boalt Hall, which houses the university’s School of Law.

In a related invitational exhibition, there will also be feature works by internationally acclaimed human rights photographers, who have worked with the Human Rights Center for two decades, presented at the Boalt Law Gallery in Fall 2014. The exhibition Envisioning Human Rights will be on view until September 21st. An opening reception will be held on April 22nd at 5:30 pm, presented by the BAM/PFA Student Committee.
