Toni Kiser, Registrar for National World War II Museum, will give a talk at the New Orleans Photo Alliance gallery this Sunday, Jan. 30, at the conclusion of a NOPA exhibit of selections from the Jungeun Lee series, “Silenced Suffering.” The talk, “Korean Comfort Women: Sexual Enslavement During World War ll,” will begin at 3 p.m.
The Photo Alliance gallery is located at 1111 St. Mary St. in the Crescent City’s Lower Garden District.
The photos in the Lee exhibit evoke the testimony of these Korean women, who were enslaved by the Japanese military during the war. The Lee exhibit opened during the PhotoNOLA, the city’s annual festival of photography, on December 10. It closes on Sunday. For more information on the exhibit, please see this previous NOPA entry.
