John Horn talks with Jen Sudul Edwards, curator of the Annenberg Space for Photography's exhibit, "WALLS: Defend, Divide, and the Divine." The show collects the work of some 70 artists who have photographed barriers all over the world — from prisons to refugee camps to fences at the U.S./Mexico border. Edwards says that the urgency for the show, which was envisioned several years ago, increased as the debate over a wall with the southern border has escalated. ("WALLS" is on view now through Dec. 29.)

Nilüfer Yanya Traverses The 'Universe'

She spoke with The Frame’s Jonathan Shifflett about the dystopian themes of “Miss Universe.”
