EXHIBITION | Voice to Vision: Latin America, Vietnam, and the Holocaust

6/1/18, 9:00 AM

About this event

Voice to Vision is a collaborative art project that captures the extraordinary experiences of genocide survivors and activists from around the world. Each project begins with a team of artists who use prompts to spark memories of survivors or activists. Some prompts include bottled smells, images, drawings, color fields, antique toys, and a tin can full of small objects. These objects help to recall a memory and bring to light emotions associated with that memory. The team listens intently to each story, working with each storyteller to develop symbols and images for use in a work of art. Creating vital and significant original new images requires hours of critical discussions and definitive decisions. Through this process the artists unavoidably become witnesses and voices of the future. At the end, the art reflects both the survivor or activist's story and the human response to it, bridging boundaries of culture, time, and life experience. It is no longer just historical information that appears in books, but it is now part of their lives. Voice to Vision: Latin America, Vietnam, and the Holocaust is generously funded by a University of MInnesota Grand Challenges Exploratory Research grantExhibition runs June 1 -29, 2018.
