Borders/Boundaries/Barriers at the Derfner Museum

Across Divides: Borders and Boundaries in Contemporary Art
 
March 26–July 23, 2017
Reception Sunday, March 26 1:30-3pm
Talk by curator Reba Wulkan
 
Grounded in the description in Genesis that the world came into being through a series of divisions – light and darkness, day and night, sea and land, animals and human beings – this exhibition presents works in different media by 17 artists, who explore how individuals and communities maintain their distinctiveness, yet also reach across divides. They address boundaries that may be physical or spiritual, exist in law or in tradition, and traverse secular and religious life as they confront issues of gender, Jewish, cultural and national identities, and geographies.
 
Participating artists (JAS members in bold):  Andi LaVine Arnovitz, Tova Beck-Friedman, Siona Benjamin,  Ken Goldman, Tamar Hirschl, Sara Klar, Lea Laukstein, David Moss, Laura Murlender, K. Flo Razowsky,  Andrea Robbins and Max Becher, Ben Schachter, Ruth Schreiber, Angela Strassheim, Ahuva Winslow, and Pavel Wolberg.
