On the Avenue: Holocaust and Genocide Awareness Week
Date: Tuesday, January 25, 2022
Participate in Holocaust and Genocide Awareness Week by learning how museums and the arts can investigate history, honor survivors, and uphold the memory of those whose lives were lost. To mark the occasion, FIU's three Washington Avenue-based arts outposts—Jewish Museum of Florida, Miami Beach Urban Studios, and The Wolf—are raising awareness through a series of presentations. Speakers will include artist Lori Arbel, discussing the Marks 4 Their Lives project with Holocaust survivors; FIU Holocaust and Genocide Studies Program director Oren Stier, sharing insights from the 2013 Wolfsonian exhibition Race and Visual Culture under National Socialism; and curator Kyra Schuster from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, who will lead a conversation about how museums personalize the past.
Co-hosted by Jewish Museum of Florida (JMOF) and Miami Beach Urban Studios. This program is part of FIU's 7th Annual Holocaust and Genocide Awareness Week, presented by the Holocaust and Genocide Studies Program, Hillel at FIU, and JMOF, January 23–28.
