The Ann Loeb Bronfman Gallery Presents
Confessional Comics by Jewish Women
Thursday June 7, 2012
6:00 - 8:00 pm
Remarks at 7:00 pm from:
Michael Kaminer, Co-curator
Sarah Lightman, Co-curator and artist
Zachary Levine, Yeshiva University Museum Curator
Spotlighting the raw, revealing voices of Jewish women and their singular presence in graphic storytelling, the exhibition illuminates the intersection of experiences that make these diaristic comics so compelling. Funny, outrageous, poignant and embarrassingly intimate all at once, the works in “Graphic Details” reflect the artists’ individual journeys, refracted through a distinctively Jewish lens in a pop-culture art form. Some bare their bodies. Some expose their psyches. All are fearless about sex, romance, politics, body functions, experiences, emotions and desires.
The exhibition includes 29 pieces from Diane Noomin, Sarah Lightman, Sarah Lazarovic, Aline Kominsky-Crumb, Miriam Libicki, Bernice Eisenstein, Miriam Katin, Miss Lasko-Gross, Ariel Schrag, Trina Robbins, Ilana Zeffren, Sarah Glidden, Corinne Pearlman, Lauren Weinstein, Vanessa Davis, Racheli Rottner, Laurie Sandell and Sharon Rudahl.
Curated by Michael Kaminer and Sarah Lightman. Traveling exhibition conceived by Zachary Paul Levine and Yeshiva University Museum. Sponsored by:
