JEWBILEE 2022: Facing Social Issues in Visual Art
January 14 @ 10:00 am - 11:15 am
Facing Social Issues in Visual Art
Modern visual art, and especially contemporary visual art, is a reflection of the times in which it is created. Nowadays, there are many social issues brought to light in need of attention. How do artists respond to social issues? How do they present these issues? Do artists intend to present a solution and make a change or just attract attention? In this workshop, we will observe some visual artworks and examine the audience/observer’s response. What impression does social justice focused art leave on a community? Does social justice driven art change an observer’s perspective?
Join us with Sigal, a professional in the art community. Originally from Israel, Sigal was an educator for many years in a variety of Jewish institutions. She has over a decade of experience as a docent at the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco.
