Class: Art as a Bridge to Israel’s Past, and Beyond
with Michal Nachmany
Date: April 15, 2019
Location: Pavilion
Description: Michal Nachmany will discuss and demonstrate her artistic journey, from young life in Jerusalem to her artistic transformation in New York City. Nachmany uses collage as a medium to create new stories about the memories evoked by objects she uses in her work. Her techniques - which incorporate memorabilia, legal contracts, letters, photo albums, matchbooks, postcards, and other found objects -- sew together swatches of life through images, colors, and words. A central theme of Nachmany's work is that every person and every object has a journey,' thus her work focuses on the ways personal and cultural journeys are captured in memories and objects, with work that reimagines and repurposes found objects of daily life.
Cost: $15 for members of Central Synagogue
