Poster Exhibition and Opening Reception

Presented as part of USC’s Genocide Awareness Week, this, the first of three events organized by the USC Shoah Foundation, will explore artistic responses to genocide, highlighting the ability of creative expression to shine light in the darkness and give voice to silence. The events will reveal the power of the arts to communicate messages of survival and hope in the face of great tragedy. The series is sponsored by the USC Visions and Voices initiative.

The opening event will feature a student-curated exhibition of art from the Center for the Study of Political Graphics, including posters related to the genocides in Armenia, Congo, Guatemala and Rwanda, as well as the Holocaust and the murders of the women of Juárez.

6 pm panel discussion: A panel discussion will be presented at 6 p.m. with USC Fisher Museum Director Selma Holo and USC Shoah Foundation Executive Director Stephen D. Smith.

Presented in honor of Genocide Awareness Week, these events are organized by USC Shoah Foundation and co-sponsored by USC Fisher Museum, USC School of Cinematic Arts, USC School of Theatre, and the student group STAND.
