Blood Memory: A View from the Second Generation

November 29, 2012 @ 3:00 pm – 11:00 pm
Holocaust Museum Houston
5401 Caroline Street
Houston, TX 77004

In the national premiere retrospective of her work, Blood Memory: a View from the Second Generation, artist Lisa Rosowsky explores the “second generation” experience as the daughter of a hidden child and refugee from the Holocaust. Themes of repression and loss emerge, as do memories and stories about a family decimated by war.

Rosowsky writes that “blood memory” is “the knowledge that cannot possibly be handed down, but is, and it lies at the heart of my work as a visual artist.” In this new exhibition at Holocaust Museum Houston, this knowledge is represented through a variety of media, including quilting, sculpture, printmaking and installation. Rosowsky’s paternal family lived in France during World War II. As Jews, they became the targets of the Nazis, who invaded Paris in 1940.
