Creative Quest: Art from the Holocaust's Second Generation
While not experiencing the Holocaust first hand, children of survivors are nonetheless profoundly affected by it. The seven artists in this exhibit are children of Holocaust survivors. They are individual voices of the Second Generation. These artists work from/against/with the impact of a family history they know or sense from their interactions with surviving family members. The subject matter of their work, the materials they use, and the themes they address reflect the intense nature of their family history. In some of the work, it is clear what informs the artistic process; while in other works, the connection is more subtle.
From NPR, Artists Ernest Shaw Jr. and Miriam Mörsel Nathan draw on their respective ancestral histories to create their work.
Reception: March 27, 2022 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
