The Beginning of Creativity
An Interfaith, Intercultural Three Venue Event!
The Jewish Art Salon has created a radical cultural conversation, positively unique during the anxiety and dissonance of our current era. This exhibition of 130 artworks is a forceful aesthetic statement about unity, positivity, and hope, by creating a decisive new interreligious/intercultural/ visual art exhibition based on the Creation Narratives.
An innovative course of meaningful communication has emerged between Jewish, Christian, Islamic and secular artists as they created works of art reflecting these seminal stories of religious world literature. The exhibition is committed to an inclusive discussion examining the narratives and what they mean to the individual artists and their communities at large at this moment in world history.
The exhibition will feature two panel discussions to explore a selection of the artworks and the underlying ideas of Genesis:
- The Role of the Feminine in the Secular and the Sacred: Genesis’ complex ideas concerning contemporary women, including new approaches to spirituality and secular themes. May 11, 6pm, The Interchurch Center.
- The Art of Creation: A Discussion: the Genesis Narrative seen through the distinct lens of contemporary and progressive Islam, Christianity and Judaism. June 1, 6pm, Jewish Theological Seminary.
