“Voice to Vision”
Sunday, Aug. 26 – Sunday, Sept. 16
PUBLIC RECEPTION: 4 – 5:30 p.m., Tuesday, Sept. 11
Exhibit curator David Feinberg will speak at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 11, in Frances Frazier Comstock Theatre.
“Voice to Vision,” curated by David Feinberg, features 30 artworks that have been created through collaboration by a team of artists and genocide survivors. The collaborative process involves the sharing of stories through dialogue and the transformation of those stories into works of art. The goal of the Voice to Visions project is to use the visual arts to forge a genuine connection between the audience and the genocide survivors and their experiences so that the lessons of genocide are forever kept alive. A professor in the Art Department at the University of Minnesota, David Feinberg serves as director of the project. Voice to Vision was developed through the collaboration of an interdisciplinary visual research team that includes participants from the university’s Art Department and the Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies, as well as participants from the Twin Cities communities.
This exhibition occurs in conjunction with the Annual Faith, Reason, and World Affairs Symposium and is supported by Concordia College’s Office of Cultural Events.
