Before, After: Reflections on the Armenian Genocide Opens at ReflectSpace Gallery

Before, After: Reflections on the Armenian Genocide traces generations of Armenian resiliency through the common thread of loss and survival. The exhibition examines the connections passed down through blood, migration and history; from genocide to diaspora to belonging. Before, After integrates artifact with abstraction, witness accounts with recreation, old materials repurposed, and new molds made. The Armenian experience (both past and present, before and after) is showcased through a range of mediums and practices, reflecting the repeating patterns of grief, healing and reflection.

Before, After: Reflections on the Armenian Genocide includes artworks by nine artists: John Avakian, Anush Babajanyan, Silvina Der-Meguerditchian, Diana Markosian, Jacqueline Kazarian, Talin Megherian, Marsha Nouritza Odabashian, Jessica Sperandio and Scout Tufankjian.

Before, After opened on April 20 and continues through July 7 at ReflectSpace Gallery, inside Glendale Central Library, 222 E. Harvard St. in Glendale. Three hours of free parking is available with validation at the Market Place Parking Structure located directly across from the library entrance at 120 Artsakh Ave. in Glendale.
