Tear/Repair (kriah/ichooi)

February 23, 2010 through April 26, 2010

View images of the exhibition.  View an interview with Andi Arnovitz in her Jerusalem studio.

In Tear/Repair (kriah/ichooi), Hadassah-Brandeis Institute Artist-in-Residence Andi Arnovitz, in residence at Brandeis from Feb. 1 to 24, created a new body of work — a series of sketches for paper coats that honor Jewish women who have impacted history and changed the world.

These coats are an extension of Adroit's "Garments of Faith" series, which will also be on view. Each of these garments, fabricated from torn or intact papers, scrolls and book pages, represents injustices for Jewish women. The works address challenges throughout history to the present, from halachic and spiritual issues, to those of coexistence, and above all, issues related to gender.

The 2010 HBI Artist-in-Residence Program is made possible thanks to the generous support of Avoda Arts, Arnee and Walter Winshall and the Schusterman Center for Israel Studies at Brandeis University.
