In the spring of 2012, twelve students in Duke University’s MFA in Experimental and Documentary Arts program flew to Las Vegas for a crash art project sponsored by Zappos.com. Their mission: seek, capture, and record the infamous Sin City, in two days. The result: 48 Hours in Las Vegas.

The Triangle area’s Independent Weekly describes the exhibition as “work that teases out America’s contradictions in long cab rides, interviews and even scenes from a historic Mormon fort, smack dab in the middle of downtown, examining the weird relationships between residents and their iconic city.”

48 Hours in Las Vegas will be on view on Duke’s East Campus in the Fredric Jameson Gallery through February 17. Read more about the exhibit on Duke Today.
