Regenerations: A Twenty-year Retrospective of the Holocaust Work of Nomi Kaplan

Exhibition TypeIn-house exhibition
Event DateSeptember 6, 1995–October 6, 1995
VenueVancouver Holocaust Education Centre
DescriptionA part of the city-wide public forum The Spectacular State: Fascism and the Modern Imagination, Regenerations features major works from local artist Nomi Kaplan, whose family fled to Canada at the start of the Second World War to escape the Holocaust. Incorporating photographs, rubbings from gravestones and collage and installation pieces that document and try to make sense of her experiences and family history, the exhibition is the first retrospective of Kaplan’s art. Working with materials “from her own backyard” puts Kaplan in touch with the cycles of birth, life and death. “These are universal things which affect us all, but over which we have only partial control.”
