Meet the Curator, Emma Gashinksy at Free Open House

CLEVELAND – The Jewish Federation of Cleveland announces the opening of “Israel: Land & Identity,” an exhibit featuring the artworks from the Levin Collection in Jerusalem. All are invited to meet curator Emma Gashinsky at an Open House on Sunday, November 22 from 2:00 – 5:00 p.m. in the Roe Green Gallery at the Jewish Federation of Cleveland’s Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Building (25701 Science Park Drive in Cleveland). Curator Talks will be at 2:30 p.m. and 4:00 p.m.

“Israel: Land & Identity” focuses on the ways Israeli identity has been shaped in local and visual culture in the past century by exploring manifestations of the country’s land and landscape – a seminal theme in Israeli art history. A selection of 46 works from the Levin Collection in Jerusalem offers a historical panorama – a mosaic of identities and styles, which indicates a yearning for self-determination, both national and personal, essentially founded on a bond with the land.

Emma Gashinsky will be in Cleveland November 16 –22 and is available for interviews. For all media inquiries, contact Rebecca Stolarsky at rstolarsky@jcfcleve.org or 216-593-2877.

Registration is not required. Walk-ins are welcome. For more information on this exhibit or the Cleveland Israel Arts Connection, please visit www.jewishcleveland.org, or contact Sylvia Owen at sowen@jcfcleve.org or 216-593-2856.

This exhibition is presented by the Cleveland Israel Arts Connection, a program of the Jewish Federation of Cleveland. It is sponsored with support from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture and the Ofer Levin Foundation for Israeli art.
