Join Dr. Gannit Ankori, Henry and Lois Foster director and chief curator of the Rose Art Museum and professor of fine arts and women, gender and sexuality studies at Brandeis University, for a conversation with Israeli-born Palestinian multimedia artist, director and actor Raida Adon.
Raida Adon’s “Body Recalled” (2011) is currently on view in “re: collections, Six Decades” at the Rose Art Museum. In her work, Adon employs fictional narratives imbued with a sense of alienation to address a personal and collective search for identity and longing for home.

Studio Israel is a partnership among Hadassah-Brandeis Institute, Jewish Arts Collaborative, the Schusterman Center for Israel Studies and the Vilna Shul, and is made possible by generous support from Combined Jewish Philanthropies. This event is also cosponsored by the by the Rose Art Museum, and is supported by the New Israel Fund’s Essential Art project.
