I Can't Sleep: Homage to a Uyghur Homeland

Artist Lisa Ross exhibits for the first time this series of large-scale portraits of the Uyghur people, depicting their everyday lives in vivid color set against the muted tones of the desert, an echo the desolate climate of state oppression that now threatens their existence.
