I Often Forget by Jonas Kulikauskas

Date and Time

Tuesday, May 30, 2023 - 12:00pm to Friday, July 7, 2023 - 5:00pm


Ronald H. Silverman Fine Arts Gallery will present “I Often Forget” by Jonas Kulikauskas from May 30 to July 7, 2023.

Jonas Kulikauskas is an interdisciplinary artist inspired by his Lithuanian heritage, family, and faith. One outcome of his Fulbright journey to Lithuania in 2021 is the present exhibit I Often Forget--a photographic exploration of the fragile layers of time in everyday spaces. In a time of rising anti-Semitism, he, using a World War II-era lens on an 8"x10" camera, captured the circadian life of what was once the Vilnius Ghetto. His installations illuminate histories, conflicts, resistance, survival, confusion, and trauma relating to the Holocaust, ethnic nationalism, and cultural desecration. The exhibition, “I Often Forget” by Jonas Kulikauskas, compels us to question and reflect on the human condition.

“I Often Forget” is partially funded by the Fulbright Program and the Puffin Foundation. Contributors include Dr. Jon Seligman (archeologist), Dr. Saulius Sužiedelis (historian), the Vilna Gaon Museum of Jewish History, and the Ronald H. Silverman Fine Arts Gallery at Cal State LA.

Reception: Sunday, June 4, 2023, 1 - 5 p.m.
