Israeli artist Tamar Paley, in her first American exhibition, interprets ritual objects by deconstructing and redesigning traditional symbols to reflect feminine consciousness and nature.
For generations, men passed down the Jewish “story.” This exhibition challenges the gendered narrative, takes the liberty to change tradition and dares to dissect and recreate sacred objects to create a new female narrative of Jewish life through wearable and functional objects embodied in her interpretations of the tallit, tzitzit and tefillin.
Exhibit runs March 5 through June 22.
Tuesday, March 20, 2:30-4 p.m.
Exercises for the Quiet Eye with Annie Storr
WSRC scholar, art historian and museum educator Annie Storr will lead art experiencing exercises through the Kniznick Gallery exhibition Tamar Paley | A Fringe of Her Own: A Collection of Ritual Objects for Women. Storr developed Exercises for the Quiet Eye (EQE) to encourage patient reflection, appreciation and an attempt to avoid the rush to understand, or determine, a set interpretation for what we see.
