As collectors from across the globe converged on Miami last week for the world-famous Art Basel art fair, Jewish artists made their mark by depicting their personal stories of blended backgrounds and immigration. The Jewish Art Salon, the largest Jewish visual art organization in the world, sponsored the JADA Art Fair & Artist-in-Residence Program at the Basel event; its exhibition explored themes such as Jewish immigration, persecution, the Diaspora, redemption and the return home…..
The initiative, the Jewish Art Salon wrote, “boldly recognizes the invaluable role of Jewish folklore, history, allegory, and even of religion, in the process of making and experiencing contemporary art.”
