ART EXHIBIT: Visual-Emotional Stamps: Poland Post WW11
Fri, 20 Mar 2015 18:30:00 +0000

Warsaw, Poland, is a place I have often thought about ever since I read a book about a young boy migrating from Eastern Europe to New York following World War II. While I could empathize with his process of adaption into the American culture I had no direct experience with being persecuted or with my family being annihilated. The photographs serve as a testimony of my being present at the various towns, cities, synagogues, and sites of perishment. The images are the visual-emotional stamps of my bodily reaction to seeing, touching, and hearing the past and present. I had to let go of the Poland I had imagined and submit to my senses. In letting go I felt indescribable grief, profound sadness, and, yet hope at the same time.” Gerardo D. Canul, Ph.D., Associate Professor The Chicago School of Professional Psychology, Irvine Campus RSVP: http://artexhibitcanul.eventbrite.com Light refreshments will be provided!
