Panel Discussion

Remembrance and Difference

Ydessa Hendeles’ exhibition The Milliner’s Daughter explores the ways that communities gather by assembling found objects called “curatorial compositions”. Through these compositions, Hendeles uses memory as avenue to open a discourse about memory and identity.

To explore this theme from diverse perspectives, The Power Plant will host a panel discussion led by Dr. Shelley Hornstein, professor of Architectural History and Visual Culture at York University, an author of and contributor to multiple books and anthologies related to memory in visual art, especially following atrocities of the Second World War. Panelists include Toronto-based artist Jessica Karuhanga; Dr. Carson Phillips, Managing Director, Neuberger Holocaust Centre and one more participant TBC.
