Opening Lecture: The Jewish Artist “Is there Jewish art?”
Is there a unique way in which a Jewish artist thinks visually? What do Jewish artists share? How can we identify the Jewish lens through which we view what we encounter? How has this interpretive perspective changed over the generations? How does it change over our own journey this year? Among the artists examined are Pissaro, Modigliani, Chagall, Soutine, Mark Rothko, Eva Hesse, Mierle Ukeles, Deborah Kass, and a range of contemporary Israeli painters
