Undeliverable: Postcards and Photos of Lives Interrupted

Thursday, December 14 at 9:00am

More dates through January 31, 2018

Doheny Memorial Library (DML)
3550 Trousdale Parkway, Los Angeles, CA 90089

The exhibit consists of a collection of Armenian-themed postcards from Ottoman Empire. All of the postcards are pre-1915 and were meticulously collected over the years by Orlando Carlo Calumeno. As a collective these postcards stand as a reminder of a way of life that was interrupted.

The postcards are juxtaposed with photographs taken by Brazilian Armenian photographer Norair Chahinian who had traveled to Turkey in 2015 and a century later had documented the spaces that once were occupied by Armenian life and now are empty.
