"JAN VAN LEEUWEN: CONFRONTATIONS WITH MEMORY"
2000-03-10 until 2000-04-23
Holocaust Museum Houston
Houston, TX, USA United States

Alomst fifty years after the Holocaust, Jan van Leeuwen's childhood memories of Nazi occupied Amsterdam of his friends and classmates began to haunt his photographs. In a fit of anger van Leeuwen produced two series of Cyanotypes after learning how the events in Yugoslavia, in the early 1990's, seemed to mirror those of Nazi Germany. The emotions and images captured in van Leeuwen's photographs echo his experience as a child and cry out in protest against the resurgence of discrimination and extermination among ethnic groups.

Holocaust Museum Houston presents JAN VAN LEEUWEN Confrontations With Memory March 9 till April 23, 2000. Central Gallery Holocaust Museum Houston, 5401 Caroline. Museum Hours: Monday-Friday 9 am-5 pm. Saturday & Sunday noon -5 pm. This exhibition is co-sponsored by Holocaust Museum Houston and Fotofest 2000. The Untitiled suite, a purchase with funds provided by Joan and Stanford Alexander and Max and Isabel Smith Herzstein, has been generously lent by The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. The Self-portraits have been kindly lent by Photographs Do Not Bend Gallery in Dallas, Texas.
