Making Continuity Contemporary: Eastern Europe in New York

I'm delighted to be part of this upcoming show, which is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.


Derfner Judaica Museum + The Art Collection at Hebrew Home at Riverdale is pleased to announce its latest exhibition Making Continuity Contemporary: Eastern Europe in New York on view in the Elma and Milton A. Gilbert Pavilion Gallery from March 13–July 17, 2016. This exhibition featuring work by eight artists originally from Eastern Europe addresses themes of personal history, geographical dislocation, identity, and intellectual freedom. An opening reception with the artists will take place in the Gallery on March 13 from 1:30–3 pm. R.S.V.P. 718-581-1596 or 

In different ways, each artist explores the disruptions and continuities in their cultural backgrounds, whether through pictorial abstraction, participatory projects, auditory or written language, or conceptual reinterpretation of cultural symbols. Their mediums also range widely and include hand-drawn animation and audio, chemigrams, painting, mixed media, photography, sculpture, and installation.
