Graphic Details: Opening Reception Washington DCJCC
The Ann Loeb Bronfman Gallery Presents
Graphic Details: Confessional Comics by Jewish Women
Opening Reception 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.
Edlavitch DCJCC embraces inclusion in all its programs and activities.
We welcome and encourage the participation of all people, regardless of
their background, sexual orientation, abilities, or religion, including
interfaith couples and families.
