Nonlinear Histories: Transgenerational Memory of Trauma

March 17 - May 6, 2018


ReflectSpace Gallery at Glendale Central Library hosts Nonlinear Histories: Transgenerational Memory of Trauma, an exhibition that explores the poetics and politics of memory and inherited trauma of the Armenian Genocide. Revolving around the idea of postmemory, a concept developed by renown literary and cultural critic Marianne Hirsch, Nonlinear Histories probes memories and narratives transmitted in the wake of trauma: the process of its individual and collective ownership, and the collision of personal, national and cultural memories.

Artists in exhibition: Jean Marie Casbarian, Eileen Claveloux, Didem Erk, Hrayr Eulmessekian, Silvina Der Meguerditchian, Hrair Sarkissian and Harry Vorperian. Nonlinear Histories is co-curated by Ara and Anahid Oshagan and Isin Onol.

Simultaneously with the Nonlinear Histories, the PassageWay at Downtown Central is hosting an archival exhibition of family memoirs and historic photographs: Prosperity, Loss, and Survival: A Photographic Journey from the Dildilian Family Archive.
