Tackling Hate Speech With Textiles: Robin Atlas in New York for Tu B’Shvat

bfnei-shlosha-2012-mixed-media-on-fabric-54cfabfaZeek Magazine features an article by Patricia Eszter Margit talking with Robin Atlas about her Jewish Art Salon exhibit Lashon Hara at the Anne Frank Center USA:

Lashon hara,” Seattle-based artist Robin Atlas tells me, “is a universal issue that goes way beyond the personal level, even the laws of Judaism. The whole world could be changed for the better if people would be mindful of their speech.”

Working in mixed media, mainly textile art, Atlas elevates lashon harainto the broader context of intolerance, anti-Semitism, xenophobia, racism and discrimination.

Atlas invites viewers to join her in expanding the conversation in her interactive exhibit “Lashon Hara: On the Consequences of Hate Speech,” at the Anne Frank Center in New York through late February, presented in conjunction with the Jewish Art Salon.
