Deeply connected to nature and interested in human consciousness, visual artist, Alicia Hunsicker is inspired by both science and spirituality.  Shift  showcases her recent paintings, sculpture, and installation that explore the territory between the organic and the artificial. Hunsicker says “My paintings and new sculptural work straddle the pursuit of beauty, serenity, and spontaneity found in the organic world and the uncertainty and instability of  the artificial.”

On view in the main gallery space are a forest of tree sculptures, a painting of a sparkling waterfall, alcohol-ink paintings on tiles, and paper flower sculptures in a variety of sizes.

Hunsicker’s ethereal, open ended paintings made their first appearance in a solo show at Hampden Gallery 10 years ago. In this new body of work, aptly titled Shift, the artist’s signature orbs and floral motifs have have shifted from two to three dimensional.

This body of work is comprised of 80% or more of recycled materials. Hunsicker  repurposes these materials in unexpected ways -- all while keeping notions of a lush edenic garden somewhere in the mix.

Of the shift that has occurred in this new body of work, Hunsicker writes, “By keeping my studio practice in line with my spiritual practice I trust that the resulting work will express my view of the world.”

Holocaust Memory in Contemporary Poland and Israel: The Challenge From Right–Wing Regimes

Fri, Apr 27 2018 - 4:30pm to 7:00pm
Location: 
IHGMS, 758 N Pleasant St, Amherst

Friday, April 27 at 4:30pm, the Institute for Holocaust, Genocide, and Memory
Studies at UMass Amherst presents “Holocaust Memory in Contemporary Poland
and Israel: The Challenge From Right-Wing Regimes,” a panel discussion with
Jan Grabowski (University of Ottawa), Elżbieta Janicka (Polish Academy of
Sciences), and Raz Segal (Stockton University), and moderated by Alon
Confino, Director of IHGMS and Professor of History and Jewish Studies and
Pen Tishkach Chair of Holocaust Studies at UMass Amherst. Reception will
follow.

The recent rise of right-wing populist movements and regimes in Europe,
Israel, and the United States has changed the memory of the Holocaust in ways
we could not have imagined only ten years ago. This event sets out to map how
Holocaust memory has been recently reframed in Poland and Israel, and how it
has been used politically and to what ends.

The panel will include:

Jan Grabowski
"The Origins and the Meaning of the Polish 'Holocaust Law'"
Jan Grabowski is Professor of History of the Holocaust at the University of
Ottawa, and founding member of the Polish Center for Holocaust Research in
the Polish Academy of Sciences.

Elżbieta Janicka
"Identity Panic: Counter-narratives of the Holocaust and their
Institutionalization Beyond Political Cleavages (the Case of Poland)"
Elżbieta Janicka is historian of literature at the Institute of Slavic
Studies, Polish Academy of Sciences.

Raz Segal
"Self-Devouring Memory: The Holocaust in Israeli Society and Politics"
Raz Segal is Assistant Professor of Holocaust and Genocide Studies and Sara
and Sam Schoffer Professor of Holocaust Studies at Stockton University, where
he also serves as Director of the Master of Arts in Holocaust and Genocide
Studies.
