Student-Curated Exhibit Opening: “Immersion in a Perception: The Art of David Labkovski”
“Immersion in a Perception: The Art of David Labkovski” is a student designed and curated immersive, experiential installation envisioned by seniors Maddie White and Sydney Payab. The exhibit is produced in partnership with The David Labkovski Project, an organization that advances knowledge of the Holocaust through the art of Lithuanian artist David Labkovski (1906-1991) utilizing his history, paintings, and sketches. The project emphasizes tolerance, justice, and the importance of bearing witness to history.
Each component of the exhibit will give the visitor a glimpse into the artist’s experiences and perceptions. Walk in David Labkovski’s footsteps through the use of virtual reality created by Weston Bell-Geddes ‘19. Explore the human cost of totalitarianism through soundscapes by Film I students. Engage with some of the ethical questions brought to light through students in the Upper School’s Ethics class. Don’t miss this opportunity to have a unique and enriching experience through the eyes of David Labkovski. This exhibit was created in conjunction with students from the Vilnius Lyceum. An exhibit with some shared components opened in Vilnius, Lithuania on April 3.
The exhibit will be open to the Viewpoint community beginning with the grand opening on May 29 at 7:00 p.m. and will continue on May 30 (9:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m.) and May 31 (9:30 a.m.-3:00 p.m.). The exhibit will be on display in the Ahmanson Foundation Black Box Theater.
