AMERICAN JEWISH HISTORICAL SOCIETY NEW YORK, NY

1917: How One Year Changed the World

1917 looks back 100 years to explore how the dramatic events of a single year brought about fundamental changes in American politics and culture that reverberated throughout the world and still impact us today. 1917 is the first exhibition to demonstrate how three key events--America's entry into World War I, the Bolshevik Revolution, and the signing of the Balfour Declaration--brought about political, social, and cultural changes that reshaped the United States' role in the world. The exhibition is co-organized by the American Jewish Historical Society (AJHS) and the National Museum of American Jewish History (NMAJH),

The Legacy of the Hebrew Orphans’ Home

The Jewish Educational Loan Fund (JELF) has a long and storied history that reflects the dynamic role of Jewish giving and a commitment to higher education in the South.

Kutiman: offgrid offline

The Contemporary Jewish Museum's soaring Yud Gallery will be home for the next year to "offgrid," a 38-minute-long, Internet-sourced audio visual surround sound meditation on the psychedelic jazz of the 1950s and 60s by one of Israel's most celebrated artists. Kutiman (born Ofir Kutiel in Jerusalem in 1982) is a master of YouTube mashups, subtly and intricately knitting together snippets of everything from instructional music videos to amateur drum solos that others have uploaded. Many of the videos in his "Thru You" series have received millions of views and have earned him a devoted following and even a spot on Time magazine's "Fifty Best Inventions of 2009" list.

"offgrid" was developed for the Tel Aviv Museum of Art and shown there in 2016. The immersive work, coming to the United States for the first time in this showing at The CJM, is comprised of twelve monitors equally spaced around the gallery on which various solo instrument players appear and disappear in thousands of combinations from 96 unrelated YouTube clips. The exhibition also includes a separate monitor outside of the main gallery that will show a compilation of Kutiman's "Thru You" videos.

CONTEMPORARY JEWISH MUSEUM, THE San Francisco, CA

In That Case: Havruta In Contemporary Art—Allison Smith and Christina Zetterlund

The current installation features the work of artist Allison Smith in collaboration with Christina Zetterlund,
Smith has created a number of projects that consider traditional craft and historical reenactments in the context of the United States. Smith first met Zetterlund, a craft and design historian and theoretician based at the Konstfack in Sweden, during her recent residency in Stockholm. They discovered a shared interest in the politics of handcraft and its use in both progressive and conservative social movements. Through a series of emails, shared texts, Skype sessions, and in-person visits in Stockholm and San Francisco, their exchanges have explored the role of traditional craft in constructions of nationalism and processes of colonization, and have specifically delved into the writings and teachings of the Jewish Swedish educator, Otto Salomon (1849-1907; born in Gothenburg, Sweden), whose work focused on the concept of sljöd (pronounced sloyd), a term which can be defined as "craft" or manual "skill." The new work created for this exhibition, titled Models for a System, will be presented in an installation that plays with the conventions of period rooms and living history museums.

GALICIA JEWISH MUSEUM Kraków,

The Girl from the Diary: In Search of Rywka Lipszyc

In 1945 a Soviet doctor found a school notebook in the liberated Auschwitz-Birkenau Camp. It was a diary written by the teenaged Rywka Lipszyc in the Łódź Ghetto between October 1943 and April 1944 - the testament of a Jewish girl who lost her siblings and parents, but never lost hope despite moments of doubt.

This moving memoir of life and adolescence in the Ghetto, is the starting point for this exhibition, which features excerpts from the diary; expert commentary from historians, doctors, psychologists and rabbis; and historical artifacts and documents from museums in Poland, the USA, Israel, Germany and Belgium. The beads, thimbles, and toys are a moving testament documenting the personal dimensions of the Holocaust, which are so easily overlooked when teaching the Holocaust.

From the now- 95 year-old Sylvia Whyte designer, whose children’s clothing brought the likes of Debbie Reynolds, Frank Sinatra and Zsa Zsa Gabor flocking to her Miami Beach store in the 1950s, to an 11 year-old entrepreneur now embarking on her first clothing line incorporating her grandfather’s artwork into her designs, Floridian Jews have created a large footprint on this industry. With iconic brands like Perry Ellis and Chico’s, climate-influenced guayaberas, golf shirts and Florida furriers, to funky wearable art and bikinis and belts made out of local snakeskins, this exhibit will surprise and inspire you!

Lamp of the Covenant: Dave Lane

Sacramento-based artist Dave Lane's Lamp of the Covenant, a ninety-foot long, 12,000-pound installation, suspended overhead as visitors enter The Contemporary Jewish Museum (The CJM). Lane's work is the first major commissioned installation to appear in The CJM's Koret Taube Grand Lobby. The artist's body of work mixes recycled and sculpted steel, old tools and Edison bulbs, globes and utensils in an astonishingly modern way. Chief Curator Renny Pritikin, who commissioned the installation for The CJM, says, "When I first saw Dave's work in 2006, I was blown away. I had never seen anything quite like it in my life." Lamp of the Covenant ties in themes celebrated in Lane's body of work, including the ideas of creation, how the lamp signifies the presence of the divine, and how light embodies the human relationship with the cosmos.

Pour Crever by Trimpin

In 1940, all Jewish residents of Efringen-Kirchen in Southern Germany were deported to France and then sent on to Auschwitz. German-American artist Trimpin's Pour Crever commemorates the seventy-fifth anniversary of these tragic events. In this installation of suspended water tanks, a computer-controlled mechanism developed by the artist releases sheets of water which spell out the names of the deported residents of his town; they fall through space and disappear forever into the pool below.

More Than Just Mrs.

Through oral history interviews, photographs, and archival sources, this online exhibition explores Jewish women's organization of British Columbia. It charts the history of Hadassah/CHW, Na'amat, and National Council of Jewish Women. These very dedicated volunteers made significant contributions to the city, the province, and the world. While Hadassah/CHW and Na'amat raised funds for healthcare and education projects in Israel, National Council assisted new immigrants, children, and the elderly her in BC. Through their work, these women pushed the boundaries of so-called "women's work", playing out the ambiguities that arose in the years after the Second World War in the form of Second Wave Feminism.

Oakridge

In 1950, the Canadian Pacific Railroad released a vast tract of forest stretching from 41st Avenue and Granville Street to 57th Avenue and Main Street in Vancouver. The middle third, reaching from Oak Street to Cambie Street, was soon identified for development into a residential community anchored by a commercial hub. The construction of this new neighbourhood, Oakridge, coincided with a trend of improved financial security among many members of the Jewish community. The large lots and bungalow homes of Oakridge fit the aesthetic of the post-war middle class ideal that many young families - Jewish and not - aspired to. A suburb within the city limits, this safe, quiet area was an ideal place to raise a family.

was driven by a storm onto the Albanian coast. Instead of throwing his captives into the sea, he allowed them to disembark, and they eventually made their way to the area in which loannina later was established. This exhibit marks the century since Ioannina was incorporated into the Greek state.
