Jews exploded into the world of visual art by the beginning of the 20th century. As the decades have rolled forward, this has been particularly evident in America. From Social Realism to Abstract Expressionism—from socio-political commentary in a figurative style to subtle reflections on the world of the Holocaust in an abstract mode—Jewish artists became a dominant force in American art between the 1920s and 1950s. By the early 1970s, Jewish women artists emerged as particularly important in shaping issues and ideas that reflect on the questions of what “Jewish art” is, of how Jews fit into Western art and of how women fit into the history of art and the history of Judaism. All of this has only increased as one millennium has spilled into the next. A century of unparalleled creativity will be explored in a dynamic pair of lush, slide-illustrated lectures.
