SUKKAH CITY ANNEX: DEFINING & DEFYING BOUNDARIES
This exhibit is co-presented with The Museum of ImaJewNation.
Art Saint Louis proudly presents "Sukkah City Annex: Defining & Defying Boundaries," a concurrent exhibit on view January 16-February 23, 2012. The reception for this exhibit is also held on Saturday, January 21, 6-8 p.m. and is FREE & open to the public.
Presented in ASL's Dion Dion Gallery, the exhibit is co-presented by Art Saint Louis and the Museum of ImaJewnation. As created by Museum co-founder Naomi Fishman, the aim of this project was to start a conversation about the role boundaries play in defining and defying the contemporary human condition as interpreted by the building of the traditional Jewish structure of the Sukkah, a structure that recalls the homeless exodus through the desert and the festival of harvest, pilgrimage, and homecoming.
A temporary structure, the Sukkah dwelling is a perfect metaphor for defining a new kind of living amidst ever-changing boundaries. Works in this exhibit were curated by ASL's Robin Hirsch from the October 2011 exhibit "Sukkah City StL: Defining & Defying Boundaries," presented at Shaare Emeth Congregation, St. Louis.
This exhibit features artworks by James Stone Goodman, St. Louis; Leah Fuhrer Howard, St. Louis; Claire Medol Hyman, University City, MO; Lyubov Muravyeva, Ballwin, MO; Josie Rosenthal, St. Louis; Connie Swinson, St. Louis; Sara Swinson, Maplewood, MO; Billha Zussman, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
Gallery Hours: Monday 10 am-4 pm, Tuesday-Friday 10 am-5 pm, Saturday 10 am-4 pm. Closed Sundays, holidays & between exhibits.
