Not in Heaven: Artists as Partners in Creation

By Curators Judith Cardozo and Dr. Susan Nashman Fraiman

The exhibition “Not in Heaven” (part of the Jerusalem Biennale 2019) was a response of designers and artists to a dramatic story from the Talmud.

The presentation will include individual items from the exhibition itself as well as musings on the role of Jewish texts as sources of inspiration for artists.


Zoom link will be emailed to Jewish Art Salon email subscribers.

This series of art studio visits is organized by the Jewish Art Salon, and co-sponsored by Art Kibbutz and JADA Arts.
