THE JEW AS THE “OTHER”, Art Exhibition at the YIDDISH NEW YORK Festival.
Organized & Curated by 3 Jewish art Salon members: Tine Kindermann, Deborah Ugoretz, & Yona Verwer.

Wednesday, December 23 – Wednesday, December 30, 2015, 3-7:30 pm

Opening reception  Wednesday, December 23  from 5:00-8:00 PM.

Abrazo Interno Gallery, Clemente Soto Velez Cultural and Educational Center, 107 Suffolk Street, New York NY.

From the myth of Salome, the quintessential femme fatale, over the romanticized belle Juive, the beautiful Jewess, exemplified as Rebecca in Sir Walter Scott’s “Ivanhoe” to the dangerously attractive Jewish man, caricatured in anti-Semitic Nazi Germany pamphlets, Jews have been portrayed as mysterious and provocative.

What is it that makes being Jewish so exotic and appealing? There is no one answer. This exhibit shows artwork dealing with the issue of being exotic within the context of history and experience.
The Jew As The "Other" Wednesday, December 23 - Wednesday, December 30, 2015, 3-7:30 pm Opening reception Wednesday, December 23 from 5:00-8:00 PM. Abrazo Interno Gallery, Clemente Soto Velez Cul...
