U.S. Multi-Sate Deadline: November 17, 2018 – Yiddish New York, an annual celebration of Yiddish music, language and culture, is proud to collaborate with City Lore on this year’s art exhibition, which will be held from Thursday, December 6th, 2018, to Thursday, January 31st, 2019.
The exhibition will be curated by Deborah Ugoretz and Tine Kindermann.
This year’s theme is:
“…With the Kisses of Their Mouth…”
Eros and Spirituality
Many world traditions explore, often controversially, the connection between the sacred and the profane. In Shir HaShirim, the Song of Songs, a poem that appears in Hebrew Scripture, is the lover a person or the deity? Where do the physical and the spiritual body meet? What role does ecstasy play in the religious experience? Can it become the religious experience even in the absence of a defined religion?
We ask you: how can this seeming dichotomy be addressed through the visual arts? How can the abstract spiritual be expressed through sensual physical media? Do you see these elements as a contradiction, or do they inhabit a shared space?
Artists of all beliefs and identifications are invited to submit visual art in all media that grapples with these questions.
