Holocaust Museum Houston’s first contemporary juried exhibit, “GENOCIDE: Man’s Inhumanity to Humankind,” includes 65 selections representing 2D and 3D media. Works featured are from the more than 600 submissions by Texas area artists, with the exception of film and video. This contemporary art exhibition explores the suffering humans are capable of bestowing on one another. “GENOCIDE” is the brainchild of Holocaust Museum Houston’s changing exhibitions committee, including Gus Kopriva, owner of the Redbud Gallery in Houston, and Clint Willour, curator for the Galveston Arts Center. Willour also was the juror of the exhibition. He has served as juror for numerous commercial and non-profit organizations.
The topic of genocide is part of HMH’s mission to teach the dangers against hatred, prejudice and apathy. Through the eyes of each artists’ work, these lessons are reflected vividly, hauntingly and provocatively with the understanding of the brutality and senselessness of such acts.Inviting artists with ties to Texas inspires collaboration with the museum and further promotes the programs and activities of HMH. Privately donated cash prizes will be awarded for first, second and third place and a catalogue will be produced.
