Artist's Living Exhibit Marks Armenian Genocide

April 22, 2001

A local artist, hoping to bring a deeper understanding of the Armenian genocide to the public, has been presenting a living art exhibit throughout the Los Angeles area this week.

Culminating on Tuesday, April 24--Armenian Martyrs Day, which marks the 86th anniversary of the genocide in which 1.5 million Armenians were killed by the Turks--the exhibit features 10 individuals wearing long black dresses and holding red tree branches that symbolize blood and suffering.

The artist, Zareh, presented another performance art tribute to the genocide victims last year with his controversial "Turkish Soup Made with Armenian Bones" exhibit.

The exhibit can be seen today from 2 to 4 p.m. in front of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art on Wilshire Boulevard and Tuesday at Bicknell Park in Montebello from 3 to 5 p.m.
