Art in the Time of Corona & Rethinking Judaica with new media.

May 17, 1:00-2:00pm (EDT) / 20:00-21:00 Israel time, 10:00-11:00 PDT on Zoom.

Jerusalem-based artist LENORE MIZRACHI-COHEN is a conceptual artist from NYC, who recently relocated to Israel.

In Art in the Time of Corona she will give a taste of what the artistic landscape in Jerusalem was like before and during the lockdown period, and discuss her recent work created during crisis. Followed by a discussion about concepts represented in her work.

Much of HILLEL SMITH‘s work involves blending ancestral Jewish text and ritual with contemporary and otherwise non-traditional media, for example, street art murals with biblical texts and a digitally animated Omer counter.

In Rethinking Judaica with New Media Hillel will present a few projects of his, as well as other historical and modern examples, to attempt to reframe what Judaica can be. Hillel is based in Washington, D.C. and Los Angeles.

    As a widely recognized artist for the past 60 years, whose focus has been contemporary styled Judaic expressions (Torah Mantles, Chuppot,Tallitot, etc), your upcoming program has piqued my interest because of the affect the Covid19 quarantine has had on me and my artwork.

    In the midst of this pandemic I found myself harnessing a new strand of creativity, making art in new ways. My “pandemic art–iculated” is now combining my Jewish voice with universal connectedness.

    I look forward to Sunday so as to learn how other Judaic artists are dealing with this.
