    Art After Dark

    The Norton Museum of Art is participating in Holocaust Remembrance Day 2016 (known as Yom HaShoah in Hebrew), using the arts to commemorate and honor victims and survivors and educate the community about the most horrific example of man’s inhumanity to man in modern times. The evening program, from 5 to 9 p.m. during Art After Dark on Thursday, May 5, includes a musical performance by Sephardic and Ladino singer Susana Behar, flamenco guitarist José Luis Rodríguez, and multi-instrumentalist Reza Filsoofi, who plays exotic instruments such as the santoor, setar, tombak, and daf. The trio’s presentation,  A Tapestry of Jewish Songs, features songs sung in Ladino, Hebrew, and Yiddish from Spain, Turkey, Greece, Bulgaria, Yugoslavia, Poland, and Israel, and includes music commemorating the Holocaust.  

    The evening also includes a talk by Dr. Rosanna Gatens titled Holocaust Genesis: The Little-Known Story of One Million Murdered in the USSR. Gatens is the former Director of the Center for Holocaust and Human Rights Education in the College of Education at Florida Atlantic University, as well as a member of the Florida Task Force on Holocaust Education. She has been educating students and the public about the Holocaust since 1982.  Her presentation focuses on the one million Jews the Nazis exterminated in the Baltics, Belarus, and Ukraine before establishing their death camp system.

    Docents also will present brief “Spotlight Talks” in various galleries about Jewish artists represented in the Museum Collection, including Chaim Soutine, Max Weber, Florine Stettheimer, and Camille Pissarro.  Additional Spotlight Talks will focus on Jewish photographers represented in the Still/Moving exhibition, and include André Kertész (who fled Nazi persecution), Irving Penn, Martha Rosler, and Nan Goldin. The exhibition also features work by Robert Capa (born Endre Friedmann),  Philippe Halsman, and Man Ray (born Emmanuel Radnitzky ) who also fled the Nazis.
