THIS EVENT HAS ALREADY OCCURRED
Photographer Gillian Laub, whose exhibition Family Matters, is currently on view at The Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco, will join curator Maya Benton to explore two decades of Laub’s work and what it means to be an artist in this moment of increasingly polarizing politics and rising antisemitism.
Set against the backdrop of Laub’s powerful Family Matters exhibit, the conversation will explore the ways Laub combines her personal identity with her work as a photographer, filmmaker and visual activist. Her work interrogates areas of societal conflict and tension to prompt conversation and connection with her viewers. This conversation will include her work Testimony, documenting the lives of Muslims, Christians and Jews living in Palestine and Israel; Southern Rites her long term project about adolescents grappling with the legacy of segregation and racially motivated violence in the American south, and iconic images of public figures from LeBron James to Dolly Parton.
Gillian and Maya will examine what’s at stake and what we can do to ensure a thriving future for Jewish voices and perspectives.
This program will be held at the Contemporary Jewish Museum in conjunction with Gillian Laub: Family Matters. Gillian Laub: Family Matters is organized by the International Center of Photography, New York.
This program is supported by the Jewish Community Federation and Endowment Fund.
