"Images from South Africa was initiated in response to the South African government's imposition of the 'state of emergency' in 1986, and more significantly to the banning of media images from the areas under the state of emergency. Since few or no images were coming out of these areas at this time, we conceived the show as a way of breaking this blockage of images and as a gesture of cultural solidarity with the peoples of South Africa fighting the apartheid regime. Events since that time have only served to confirm the thrust of the show." Statement by the organizers
