Studio Israel: The Empire Shoots Back in Mizrahi Feminist Video Art

Thursday, December 10, 9am EDT

Vered Nissim is an Israeli based visual artist, mostly focused on photography and video installations. The home and family sphere is her primary source material, showing an insider point of view on immigration, social mobility, and capitalist myths, in particular ones that relate to the perception of femininity.

Dr. Sivan Rajuan Shtang is a visual culture scholar interested in the various modes of intersection between the axis of race, class, gender, and sexuality in Israeli and Zionist art and visual culture.

A partnership between HBI, the Jewish Arts Collaborative, the Schusterman Center for Israel Studies, and chaired by artist Caron Tabb, this group will bring together leaders across artforms and backgrounds to understand how Israeli art represents the swath of cultural opportunities and challenges that face Israel currently. With a focus on female artists of diverse Israeli backgrounds, we’ll dive deep into what Israel is today.

Series made possible with generous support from CJP Arts & Culture.
