Join Evelyn Tauben (Curator, FENTSTER, Toronto) for an interactive, richly illustrated presentation. As a window gallery, FENTSTER is the most public Jewish art space in Canada operating 24/7 year-round, even during the global lockdown. Evelyn will share the “FENTSTER philosophy” towards Jewish art and an overview of past exhibitions before leading a deep dive into their latest installation, a striking stained glass sculpture by Toronto artist Robert Davidovitz.
The exhibition title – What Will Remain – is from a poem by Avrom Sutzkever, whose work, along with other writings from the pre-war Yiddish literary group Yung-Vilne, Evelyn will explore in the talk, with a look at art, architecture, and Jewish history and teachings, which further form the backdrop to the exhibition. Special live performance by Yiddish singer Sarah Gordon.
