Out of the Dark brings together a selection of artworks made by survivors, child survivors and children of survivors of the Holocaust. The exhibition explores the continuing psychological intergenerational effects of the Holocaust.
Each artist has a unique and compelling story of physical and mental survival, and all the works in this exhibition represent a step in their continuing journey of dealing with past and present trauma.
Out of the Dark provides an insight into the lives of Holocaust survivors and their families within Australia, and also illustrates how art and creativity can be a source of empowerment both at a personal and political level.
This exhibition is the result of a two-year collaborative project between the Cunningham Dax Collection and the Jewish Holocaust Centre, Melbourne.
