Finding Kalman Exhibit

A small black and white family photograph taken in the 1930s is the springboard for an exhibit that explores memory, process and presence. The boy in the photograph died in the Holocaust, but through a combination of his sister’s memories and her daughter’s paintings, we feel his vibrant presence.  The multimedia installation weaves sequences of nine portraits being made with an intimate conversation between mother and daughter. Larger-scale portraits and wall panels continue the excavation of the visual, historical and emotional realities of loss, trauma and transformation.
