Fractured History explores concepts of identity, love, loss and the connection between music, history and civil rights. Aaron Dworkin is a social entrepreneur, author, artist and professor of music. Classically trained in the violin, Dworkin grew up in a diverse household; his adoptive family is Jewish, his biological mother is Irish Catholic, and his biological father is African-American and a Jehovah’s Witness. His passion for inclusion and social justice inspired him to found the Sphinx Organization, which works to help reflect the diversity in the US in orchestras. The digital and mixed media works in this exhibit combine elements of music, diversity, and an evolving aesthetic of the abstract that mirrors a disjunct search for unconditional love.
