Gary Baseman : Mythical Homeland

Mythical Homeland is enjoying an extended run at Summerhall. Artist Gary Baseman‘s exhibition delves into the real and imagined histories of generations past, interpreting the Holocaust and its lasting effects on culture and identity. Drawings, paintings, and photographs and a short film documentary entitled Mythical Creatures are installed in a small birch tree forest, referencing the very environment into which Baseman’s father fled and survived among other freedom fighters during World War II.

Mythical Homeland is on in the Dean’s Office, Summerhall, until the end of November.
