Join us for an illustrated lecture with Sato Moughalian, author of “Feast of Ashes: The Life and Art of David Ohannessian.”

Moughalian will detail the lineage of her grandfather David Ohannessian’s ceramic tradition and document the critical roles his deportation and his own agency played in its transfer—aspects of the story obscured in the art historical narrative. She will speak about the process of coming to terms with her family’s past, the ways in which that served as an impetus to excavate and reconstruct her grandfather’s history through archival research, and the importance of preserving the stories of peoples displaced through migration.

Moughalian is also an award-winning flutist in New York City and artistic director of Perspectives Ensemble, founded in 1993 at Columbia University. She serves as principal flutist of the American Modern Ensemble and Gotham Chamber Opera, and can be heard on more than 30 chamber music recordings. Since 2007, Moughalian has traveled to Turkey, England, Israel, Palestine and France to uncover her grandfather’s traces and has published articles and given talks on the genesis of Jerusalem’s Armenian ceramic art.

Cosponsored with the National Association for Armenian Studies and Research (NAASR).
