Inherited Memories, a group show from three Los Angeles artists whose grew up as children of Holocaust survivors, opens on May 18 at Castelli Gallery with a reception from 6-9 pm. The artists in this exhibition, Shula Singer Arbel, Dwora Fried and Malka Nedivi, have “inherited memories” from parents who lived through the Holocaust. 

The work of each artist tacitly denotes a different temporal relationship to the devastating event. Fried’s assemblages reflect on the normal life led by her mother’s family in prewar Krakow and the “post-normal” life her own family led in postwar Vienna – what was lost. Arbel’s small paintings are based on photographs from the Bavarian DP camp where her parents met after the war – what was gained back. And Nedivi’s sculpted figures and objects muse upon the dysphoria her mother experienced in a painful present – what could be survived but not tolerated.  

On Sunday, May 26 from 3-5 pm, there will be an Artists' Talk at the gallery moderated by Peter Frank.
