“THE ART OF MIDRASH”
A DISCUSSION OF THE MANY FACES OF JEWISH COMMENTARY ON SACRED TEXTS
Limited space is available,
Please email us to RSVP at email@example.com
Oscar Wolfman’s photography embodies a core Jewish technique to interpret sacred Jewish texts: midrash. Midrash fills in the missing sections of the narratives, resolves contradictions, and imagines creative reconfigurations of Biblical texts.
In Oscar’s staged photographic interpretations, Jewish religious and cultural life incorporates queer sensibilities and a modern urban perspective.
This solo exhibition provokes rethinking, instigates discussion, and encourages the viewer to find new beauty in old traditions.
On Thursday July 8th, 2010 7:30-9pm we are hosting a talk by Dr. Goldberg; “THE ART OF MIDRASH”
