Nonlinear Histories
Transgenerational Memory of Trauma

ReflectSpace Gallery, Glendale, California
March 17 – May 6

“Nonlinear Histories: Transgenerational Memory of Trauma”, co-curated by Ara and Anahid Oshagan and Isin Onol, an exhibition that explores the impossible yet inevitable challenges of addressing the politics of memory of the Armenian Genocide by succeeding second, third and fourth generations. Revolving around the idea of postmemory, a concept developed by renowned literary and cultural critic Marianne Hirsch, Nonlinear Histories probes memories and narratives transmitted in the wake of trauma: the process of the individual and collective ownership of trauma, and the collision of personal, national and cultural memories.
