Rite Now: Sacred and Secular in Video
The Jewish Museum is presenting Rite Now: Sacred and Secular in Video from September 13, 2009 through February 7, 2010 in the Museum’s Barbara and E. Robert Goodkind Media Center. Rite Now presents videos produced between 2001 and 2008 that explore secular and sacred rituals in a new framework, documenting inventive spiritual practices, reimagining old stories, and proposing new rituals altogether. Artists include Lior Bar, Tamar Ettun, Neil Goldberg, Barbara Rose Haum, Sarah Jane Lapp, Hila Lulu Lin and Dafna Shalom. Rite Now is presented in conjunction with the exhibition, Reinventing Ritual: Contemporary Art and Design for Jewish Life, and is open to Fridays through Mondays.
