Resistance + Rescue: Photographs by Judy Ellis Glickman

Resistance + Rescue: Photographs by Judy Ellis Glickman

Friday, October 5, 2018 - 10:00 am to Sunday, November 25, 2018 - 4:00 pm

Through images and symbols, the horrors of the Holocaust are familiar to us all. Yet, too few of us are aware of the remarkable story of the flight of the Jews out of Denmark to safety in Sweden in the fall of 1943, seventy-five years ago. The exhibition of photographs by Judy Ellis Glickman reopens a time in our history when the bravery of a few overcame the brutality of so many.

Without words, Glickman tells the story of the rescue through pictorial observations. Using subtle manipulations of the photographic process, she captures the many emotions of the rescue, as well as a stark reminder of what Hitler’s Final Solution did achieve. Glickman also presents the concentration camps as cruel, empty places. In these images, we are reminded that without the courage of the Danish government and its people, the fate of Denmark’s Jews would have been similar to that of so many of their European neighbors.

This exhibit and related events (including an opening reception on from 5:30 to 7:00 on October 5 and a three-part film series) are a collaboration of the UNI Center for Holocaust and Genocide Education and the Hearst Center for the Arts.

Letha Wilson Artist Lecture

Letha Wilson Artist Lecture

Thursday, October 25, 2018 - 6:30 pm

Letha Wilson is known for combining photography with industrial materials like concrete and steel. Wilson cuts, tears and shapes her photographs, pushing and pulling the prints into place and then encases portions of the composition in cement. She explores the magnetic pull of the American West, alluding to landscape’s intrinsic role in our own myths of reinvention, endless possibility, and inevitable promise. Using architecture and three-dimensionality as both frame and armature, Wilson reclaims the photographic image, exploring the medium’s inability to encompass the site it represents.

Letha Wilson (1976 Honolulu, US) lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. She earned her BFA from Syracuse University, and a MFA from Hunter College. Residencies include Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Yaddo, Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, Headlands Center for the Arts. Wilson has exhibited at the MASS Moca, Essl Museum, Bemis Center for Contemporary Art, Bronx Museum of the Arts, Socrates Sculpture Park, Exit Art, ARKO Art Center and the Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art.
