Yiddish NY Exhibition Call for Art

Yiddish New York, an annual celebration of Yiddish music, language and culture, is collaborating with City Lore, in NYC, on this year’s art exhibition, which will be held from Thursday, December 6th, 2018, to Thursday, January 31st, 2019. The exhibition will be curated by JAS member Deborah Ugoretz and Tine Kindermann. 

  • Submission Deadline: November 10, 2018

This year’s theme is: “…With the Kisses of Their Mouth…” Eros and Spirituality.

Many world traditions explore, often controversially, the connection between the sacred and the profane. In Shir HaShirim, the Song of Songs, a poem that appears in Hebrew Scripture, is the lover a person or the deity? Where do the physical and the spiritual body meet? What role does ecstasy play in the religious experience? Can it become the religious experience even in the absence of a defined religion?

Only hand delivered artwork can be accepted.
