Do you miss the experience of visiting a gallery? Annie Storr brings the gallery to you in a virtual workshop using imagery from the Hadassah-Brandeis Institute exhibition “Ich Bin Di Sitra Achra (I Am the Other)” by Shterna Goldbloom.

As a queer Jewish woman raised in a Hasidic community but living a mostly secular life, Goldbloom reinterprets the Hasidic term “sitra achra” used to describe things considered to be on the “other side” of holiness—like queers and women who don’t fit traditional definitions of femininity. In her photographic portraits, she gives new meaning to the term “selfie,” transforming herself in each composed image through dress, posture and setting.

Annie Storr, a scholar, museum educator and art historian, offers an opportunity to virtually reflect on Goldbloom’s art. Storr developed “Exercises for the Quiet Eye” to encourage patient reflection. Please bring a pencil and paper.
