Sunday May 17 I am organizing the Zoom session “ART IN THE TIME OF CORONA & RETHINKING JUDAICA WITH NEW MEDIA”.
May 17, 1:00-2:00pm (EDT) / 20:00-21:00 Israel time, 10:00-11:00 PDT on Zoom.
Jerusalem-based artist LENORE MIZRACHI-COHEN is a conceptual artist from NYC, who recently relocated to Israel.
In Art in the Time of Corona she will give a taste of what the artistic landscape in Jerusalem was like before and during the lockdown period, and discuss her recent work created during crisis. Followed by a discussion about concepts represented in her work.
Much of HILLEL SMITH‘s work involves blending ancestral Jewish text and ritual with contemporary and otherwise non-traditional media, for example, street art murals with biblical texts and a digitally animated Omer counter.
In Rethinking Judaica with New Media Hillel will present a few projects of his, as well as other historical and modern examples, to attempt to reframe what Judaica can be. Hillel is based in Washington, D.C. and Los Angeles.
A project by the Jewish Art Salon, co-sponsored by Art Kibbutz and JADA Arts.
