Ends Jul 7, 2024
Glendale Library, Arts & Culture and ReflectSpace Gallery are pleased to present Before, After: Reflections on the Armenian Genocide. Before, After: Reflections on the Armenian Genocide traces generations of Armenian resiliency through the common thread of loss and survival. The exhibition examines the connections passed down through blood, migration and history; from genocide to diaspora to belonging. Before, After integrates artifact with abstraction, witness accounts with recreation, old materials repurposed, and new molds made. The Armenian experience (both past and present, before and after) is showcased through a range of mediums and practices, reflecting the repeating patterns of grief, healing and reflection. Before, After: Reflections on the Armenian Genocide, curated by Ryann Casey, includes artworks by nine artists: John Avakian, Anush Babajanyan, Silvina Der-Meguerditchian, Diana Markosian, Jacqueline Kazarian, Talin Megherian, Marsha Nouritza Odabashian, Jessica Sperandio, and Scout Tufankjian. ReflectSpace Gallery is located inside Glendale Central Library at 222 E. Harvard Street, Glendale CA 91205. Please visit to confirm library hours before visiting.
