About the Exhibit

Crimean Tatars are an ethnic group considered the indigenous people of Crimea. After suffering centuries of invasion and occupation, in May of 1944, the entire Tatar population--over 180,000 people--was forcibly exiled to Central Asia. Artist Zarema Yaliboylu revisits the lasting impact of this Stalinist crime. Combining contemporary portraits and stories of those who survived the exile, the artist shows the individual impact of large-scale tragedy.
