More Info

In May 2010, the “Tivoli Incursion,” a standoff between Jamaican security forces and a local gang leader wanted for extradition by the United States government, resulted in the death of at least 75 civilians in the Tivoli Gardens neighborhood of West Kingston on the island of Jamaica. For residents of the community where the “Incursion” took place, the memories of the four days of violence and trauma remain strong.

Bearing Witness: Four Days in West Kingston, a new exhibition on view November 18, 2017 through July 15, 2018 at the Penn Museum in Philadelphia, explores the aftermath of the violence that rocked a community in Jamaica. Part art installation, part memorial, and part call to action, this powerful new exhibition sheds light on the tragic events of May 24 through 27, 2010 and its aftereffects, through compelling video, photography, written biographies, and audio featuring accounts of 21 community residents directly impacted by the violence.
