David Lablovski Exhibition

David Lablovski Exhibition

The art of David Labkovski, Lithuanian- Israeli artist will be showcased for the first time in South Africa at the Durban Holocaust Center, from Wednesday August 16. The exhibition will be opened with a lecture by the artists’ great niece and founder of the David Labkovski, Leora Raikin international speaker, educator and author. Leora travels throughout the United States speaking on the Jews of South Africa, African tribal arts and the Impact of Art as a Witness to History.

As Executive Director of the David Labkovski Project she co developed  along with Stephanie Wolfson a project based educational program to teach students  about Eastern European life, before, during and after the Holocaust through the art of her great uncle, Lithuanian- Israeli artist, David Labkovski (1906-1991). Leora served as keynote speaker for Chapman University’s Holocaust Remembrance evening. Past speakers have included Ellie Wiesel and Judea Pearl. She also served as keynote speaker at the Jewish American Holocaust and Literature Conference and the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust. Leora has been recognized by the Los Angeles Board of Education , California Legislature and the City of Los Angeles for the work she and the David Labkovski Project are doing to educate students about the Holocaust through the art of David Labkovski.

 

The exhibition has been in the planning stages with the Durban Holocaust Center for the past two years.

Labkovski’s art depicts and portrays centuries of vibrant Jewish life in Vilna, Lithuania before the Holocaust ,

Labkovski’s experience as a prisoner in the GULAG in Siberia during the war , the stories of the survivors in Vilna post Holocaust and finally his renewal in Israel. With many of South African Jews tracing their roots to Lithuania , the art reflects their history and heritage. The over 300 piece body of artwork is in South Africa, Israel and America. During his life Labkovski chose not to part with,or sell, any of his art.  The art work was involved in a 22 year court case that eventually went up to the Israel Supreme Court.  A documentary on the art and project has been screened in film festivals around the country and will be screened at the Durban Holocaust Center on August 16.
