Sarah Zell Young: Occupy Sanhedrin
Presented by Brandeis University Women's Studies Research Center
March 29 - May 18, 2012
The fourth annual Hadassah-Brandeis Institute (HBI) Artist-in-Residence, Sarah Zell Young, works in photograph, sculpture, installation and film to explore issues of justice, Judaism and the body.
Her exhibition for the HBI/WSRC, Occupy Sanhedrin, will examine roles - both religious and secular - for Jewish women from the period of the Second Temple to the present and will explore how bodies can become hazarded in the pursuit of justice. The exhibition will feature a large, site-specific installation of an interactive and participatory rendition of the Sanhedrin (Rabbinic Supreme Court).
Artist’s Slide Talk: Tues., March 13, 3 p.m.
Opening Reception: Thurs., March 29, 5-7:30 p.m.
Symposium on Judaism, Justice, and the Body: TBA
