LOOKING JEWISH / JEWISH LOOKING Jewish Identity through Modern Art, with Dana Peleg

February 27, 2016

4 Sundays in August (7th, 14th, 21th, 28th), 7:00 pmat TBE, 3055 Porter Gulch Road


They say that wherever there are two Jews, you'll find three synagogues.  So, if you have one Jewish artist - how many identities, stories and artistic styles will you find?  In a series of four lectures, we'll look at works by some of the most influential modern Jewish artists.  From the 19th Century Reform Mauritz Oppenheim via 20th-Century Socialist Ben Shahn to our contemporary Mizrahi Feminist Shula Keshet, and many more in between, we'll track the events that shaped their lives - and ours, as well...

Dana G. Peleg (danagpeleg@gmail.com) holds an MA in Art History from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.  As part of her studies, she researched the works of Israeli Jewish artists.  Peleg is also a published author in Israel, a Hebrew/English translator, and a Hebrew teacher.  She lives in Santa Cruz with her partner Mimi and their son Boaz.  Check out her bilingual website danagpeleg.net and blog danagpelegcom.wordpress.com
