Location

Room 284 100 McCaul Street, Toronto, Ontario

Art exhibitions are increasingly being harnessed to support social justice causes, including genocide awareness. In this illustrated presentation, Carla Rose Shapiro, Ph.D, will look at traveling exhibitions depicting the crisis in Darfur, with particular reference to those employing documentary media. She will also explore how contemporary representations of the Holocaust have informed the ways in which the Darfur genocide is depicted.

Dr. Shapiro is a curator and critic whose work focuses on artistic and museological approaches to representing the experiences of Holocaust and genocide survivors. Everyone is welcome.

Supported by Hillel of Greater Toronto.

Seating is limited. First-come-first-served.
