Karen Tsujimoto, Curator, the Contemporary Jewish Museum; Former Senior Curator, the Oakland Museum
Gina Baleria, Associate News Producer, KGO; Lecturer, Broadcast and Communication Arts, SFSU
Tsujimoto will discuss Kehinde Wiley’s stunning exhibition — at the Contemporary Jewish Museum through May 27 — which includes vibrant, large-scale paintings of hip men of color rendered in the self-confident poses typical of classical European portraiture. The World Stage: Israel is part of the artist’s bold series exploring the black diaspora and features Israeli and Ethiopian Jews, and Israeli Arabs, complemented by a selection of historical Jewish textiles and works on paper from which the artist drew inspiration.
