What is modern Jewish art? What is its place in our secular, multi-cultural art world? How does it convey Jewish diasporic experience; does it declare or affirm our hyphenated (Jewish-American) identities? Professor Carol Zemel will explore these questions through consideration of work by cutting-edge contemporary artists including Hannah Wilke, Ken Aptekar, and Tobaron Waxman.
