This course will delve into a study of Art, Feminism, and Jewish Tradition as expressed in the works of art of American and Israeli Jewish women artists in the 20th and 21st centuries. It will explore the reciprocal influences of these artists upon the social change in general, and Judaism in particular.
Some of the following feminist Jewish artists, who will be discussed in the course, led the Feminist Art movement in general and some dealt with subjects unique to their Jewish experience and their traditional and religious role. They include Judy Chicago, Miriam Shapiro, Mierle Laderman Ukeles, Helen Ayalon, Aviva Uri, Nechama Golan, Ruth Kestenbaum Ben-Dov, Nurit Jacobs-Yinon, and Andi Arnovitz.
