Steven Kasher Gallery presents Debi Cornwall’s first New York solo exhibition, Welcome to Camp America, Inside Guantánamo Bay, a vivid and disorienting probe into the U.S. Naval Station on Cuba known as “Gitmo.” The exhibition presents 29 large–scale color photographs as well as previously classified documents. After waiting for eight months to gain clearance, Cornwall was granted access to visit and photograph the secretive base on three separate occasions in 2014 and 2015. Cornwall confronts what George W. Bush called “enhanced interrogation techniques” of “enemy combatants;” and the place where Barack Obama admitted quite plainly, “We tortured some folks.” Through intense examination of Gitmo and its contradictions Cornwall raises tough questions about all of our lives caught up in our so-called “war on terror.” She examines the compromises we make between decency and fear in the post-9/11 era. Cornwall says, “My goal in making this work was to invite people to look at Guantánamo again after almost 16 years. Most of us have stopped looking.”
