Memory of Trees: Photography Exhibit

April 13-22, 2015

Memory of Trees, curated by Annalisa D’Angelo, features the work of photographer Kathryn Cook as she traced the memory of the Armenian Genocide across Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Armenia, Israel and France. The core of Cook’s work revolves around the Turkish town of Ağaçlı, which recently restored an Armenian silk weaving tradition. The land, the trees and the silk all symbolize the Armenian’s enduring legacy on their ancient homeland.

The collection of approximately 50 color and black and white images follows the remains and traces of an ambiguous, dark history of the Genocide–– the definition of which is still being fought over a century later.
