Friday, June 9 at 7 pm at Balzekas Museum of Lithuanian Culture (6500 S Pulaski Rd, Chicago, IL 60629)

„No One Asked Us” is a collection of Anna Reich photographs considering collective memory, identity, and landscape in Lithuania. These images document the generational effects of war, occupations, and human rights infringements on various communities across the country. The work presents details of the ways in which the people and landscape have been shaped and reshaped, the way cultural symbolism and significance has been assigned, stripped, and applied anew, and the effects of prolonged change on identity and the human condition. The various generations of people included in this work are the heart of this project.

She’s back!

For almost ten years Viktorija’s been hopscotching back and forth from her Paris home to make music with her Stateside musicians. Once again, she’ll entertain us with her song stylings as only she can do.

“An amazing singer, smart and sophisticated beyond her years, she bears comparison with the greats. Her voice is spontaneous, intimate, sensual and fun. She’s got great phrasing, impeccable timing; and she hits every note on the button. She loves the classic American songbook, and sings it as though the 1950’s had never come and gone – she’s a class act.” – Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival.
