CEPA Gallery publication from the exhibition for The Power of Resilience and Hope – Photography & the Holocaust: Then and Now.
The Power of Resilience and Hope – Photography & the Holocaust: Then and Now will feature 30 contemporary, regional, and international artists and writers whose works juxtapose and interact with archival material to create new imagery that delves into the complexities of time and space, place and memory, nature, and the devastation of civilized society. A 100+ page catalog accompanies the project.
The show aims to bridge growing divides that threaten our future with programming that inspires a cross-generational dialogue and creates a forum for artists and individuals of diverse lived experiences to come together and learn from one another with the intent of pushing back on hatred and racism. Community programming, public art, youth and adult workshops, discussion groups, and speakers will allow individuals to engage with the past as a way to inform the present and future. Community partners of the exhibition include the Holocaust Education Resource Organization (HERO), the Jewish Community Center of Greater Buffalo, UB’s Department of Jewish Thought, the Clean Air Coalition of Western New York, Mirabo Press, Western New York Book Arts Collaborative, and Journey’s End Refugee Services.
The exhibition has been in planning for many years, long before the current events began to unfold, and is intended to reject hate and promote understanding and empathy among all groups of people. With art’s ability to foster dialogue, CEPA is inviting the community to engage with the exhibition and reflect on the experiences of everyday individuals caught in the crossfire of hatred. CEPA and its partners stand against all forms of racism and violence.
