PhD candidate Amy Bowman-McElhone curated an exhibition of Gesche Würfel’s photography, What Remains of the Day – Memories of World War II, at the Pensacola Museum of Art at the University of West Florida (December 16–March 17). Würfel is a visual artist and Teaching Assistant Professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Her work, which explores memory, history, space, trauma, and architecture conceptually intertwined with photographic processes, has been exhibited, published, and awarded internationally, including at the Tate Modern in London, the Center for Photography in Woodstock, NY, and the Contemporary Art Museum in Raleigh, NC.
Amy is the Director and Chief Curator of the Pensacola Museum of Art, where she is also a visiting lecturer in the Department of Art. In compiling the digital catalog for the exhibition, Amy received contributions from PhD candidate Stephanie Bender and FSU alumna Krystle Stricklin, now a PhD candidate at the University of Pittsburgh.
