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.
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 Resource Center of Buffalo, the Jewish Community Center of Greater Buffalo, UB’s Department of Jewish Thought, the Clean Air Coalition of Western New York, Mirabo Press, and Journey’s End Refugee Services.
