Ara Oshagan | Remain in Light: Visions of Homeland and Diaspora

June 11, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - October 15, 2023 @ 5:00 pm

Remain in Light: Visions of Homeland and Diaspora
June 11 – October 15, 2023

Opening Reception
June 10 | 4 pm – 6:30 pm

Fowler Museum At UCLA
308 Charles E Young Drive North Los Angeles, CA 90024

This exhibition of almost 50 photographs endeavors to visualize the contemporary Armenian experience at home and in Los Angeles. Sossi Madzounian, Ara Mgrdichian, and Ara Oshagan—three diaspora-born Armenian artists living in LA—extend their perspectives on the life of their people in the old world and the new, collectively impacted by decades of political turmoil, religious persecution, and human rights violations. With intuition, passion, and conviction, the photographers illuminate the evolving social fabric of Armenian life: survival in the homeland, the immigrant experience in diaspora, and the rebirth of Armenian Americans on new soil.

Remain in Light: Visions of Homeland and Diaspora is organized by the Fowler Museum at UCLA and curated by Gassia Armenian, Fowler curatorial and research associate.
