Shir Madness partners with Jewish Arts to produce our Visual Arts component TOME; Tikkun Olam Multicultural Exploration.
An exhibition focusing on the universal theme of Home and Family inviting audiences on a journey of reflection and discovery into ‘the homes’ and experiences of others.
Curator Estelle Rozinski believes that every culture and every home has something ‘beautiful, rich and rare’ to offer. She invites artists of Aboriginal, Jewish and Korean origin to share and depict aspects of their family history. These personal narratives, often underpinned by sacred and traditional threads are used to create images, objects and text.
Tikkun Olam, “to repair the world” is a Jewish concept encompassing social justice, friendship, peace and the environment.
This show embraces Tikkum Olam through a deeper understanding of one another’s cultural values, and the forging of friendships.
my place + your place = a better place is the second exhibition in the Tikkun Olam multicultural exploration series, co-presented by Jewish Arts Inc and Shir Madness Jewish Music Festival. The exhibition is showing at Waverley Library, Denison Street, Bondi Junction, August 6 – September 7, 2016.
The exhibition will be formally opened on Tuesday 9 August by Janelle Evans, recipient of the Wingara Mura-Bunga Barrabugu Fellowship, Sydney College of the Arts to coincide with World Indigenous Day.
This show builds on the relationships forged in the first Tikkun Olam exhibition, April 2015 between Aboriginal, Hindu, Jewish and Korean artists. The artistic process includes a series of intercultural, collaborative workshops to share artists’ stories, cultural heritage and experience. The workshops are an integral part of this intercultural exchange.
