The Jewish Week's article "A True Representation’ Of Orthodox Women", about the lack of representation of women in the media, quotes the curator of our upcoming exhibition.

“This dichotomy of having no women in magazines but women all over social media makes the lack of representation of women in the media more clear,” said +Goldie Gross. Gross is curating an exhibit for the Jewish Art Salon called “The Invisible Jew,” about the erasure of women from ultra-Orthodox publications. “Now you have all these women who can’t really find themselves in publications but are seeing each other on their feeds,” she said.

Article in the New Jersey Jewish News discusses our art exhibition "The Invisible Jew".
... "Ultra-Orthodox women can feel invisible in their communities. Their photos don’t appear in newspapers or in public announcements, and men make the rules on how they should act, dress, and live. Artists have responded to this communal silencing in a new exhibit..."

ABOUT
Lately, along with the rise of the #MeToo movement, there have been several news items about the disadvantages of being a woman in Orthodox Judaism. In this branch of Judaism, particularly within Ultra-Orthodoxy, women are often told by the patriarchy how to dress, act, and be. Women are told that they are “separate but equal,” and are admonished for damaging the integrity of their community if they do not follow strict rules of modesty. This proposed art exhibition deals with the systematic bias that has created the invisible women of Orthodox Judaism.

ARTISTS:
Andi Arnovitz, Daniel Baerwald, Rena Bannett, Gabriella Boros, Joanna Dion Brown, Isaac Brynjegard-Bialik, Leah Caroline, Fortune Chalme, Irina Chtypel, Lenore Mizrachi-Cohen, Shosh Cohen, Ronit Levin Delgado, Dorit Jordan Dotan, Sara Erenthal, Goldie Gross, Marcia Bricker Halperin, Oren Herschander, Alison Horvitz, Yehudis Keller, Ann Koffsky, Tali Margolin, Nechama Markowitz, Florence Nasar, Hadar Oppenheim, Joyce Polance, Leah Raab, Anna Roberts,  Joan Roth, Cynthia Beth Rubin, Ruth Schreiber, Joel Silverstein, Miriam Stern, Yona Verwer, Jeane Vogel, Joyce Ellen Weinstein, Nurit Jacobs Yinon, Sara Zell Young, and Billha Zussman.
