Artists' views of Guantanamo Bay
Art inspired by the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base will appear throughout the US this fall. On 5 October, Steve Mumford’s drawings of the Guantanamo grounds will go on show at Postmasters Gallery in Tribeca (through 9 November). Also in October, a book of drawings by the base’s only resident courtroom sketch artist, Janet Hamlin, is scheduled for publication by Fantagraphics Books. This week, the artist Molly Crabapple, who recently returned from her second trip to Guantanamo, published online her drawings of some of the 35 detainees there who are currently engaged in a hunger strike.
