Museums | Jewish History: Centuries of Art


One of the largest collections of art and Jewish culture in the world, it focuses both on artifacts of Jewish history and on modern and contemporary art. Works in the collection are presented as distinctive creative expressions and as bearers of the stories of those who made, owned, used, preserved, and sometimes transformed them. The exhibition speaks of the vast range of Jewish experiences across the globe and over time, made tangible through artistic expression. It is both a mirror of Jewish identities and an inspiration for the formation of new ones. Covid protocol applies.

Screening | Living with Ghosts: Films on Africa's Colonial Past


Living with Ghosts explores how the unresolved traumas of Africa’s colonial past and its unfulfilled project of decolonization continue to haunt its present. The exhibition proposes that lens-based media, such as photography and film, possess a unique capacity to materialize the ghostliness of Africa’s postcolonial condition given the spectral structure inherent to such media. Thinking beyond the gallery as the primary venue for encountering exhibitions, Living with Ghosts will screen a selection of six single-channel artworks over the course of an afternoon. These screenings form a constitutive segment of the exhibition, and in their collective terms of viewership, aim to echo the poetic-political aspirations of Third Cinema – a revolutionary cinematic movement arising in Asia, Africa, and Latin America during the 1960s and 1970s that sought to expand the decolonial imagination amongst its audiences. All the selected works, which speak to multiple regions within and outside the African continent, thematize and materialize this notion of ghostliness through audiovisual and discursive references to memory, trauma, archives, architecture, and landscapes.

Play | Larry and Lucy: Drama Reminiscent of Midnight Cowboy, Whitnail and I


Reminiscent in tone of classic films like "Midnight Cowboy" and "Whitnail & I," Larry & Lucy is about two emotionally wounded outsiders struggling to find a sense of place in the world. The play touches on the themes of loneliness, togetherness and the continuing opiate crisis in America. Larry is a worn-out, 63-year-old street muralist who now barely supports his meager, one room Hollywood existence by driving for Uber. Lucy is a fragile Kansas City teen runaway looking to beat a heroin addiction. After a few chance meetings the two embark on a series of misadventures that help them gain insight into their troubled lives, yet also reminds them of the difficulties they'll face when trying to overcome their deep rooted afflictions.
