The Yud Video Project

Nov 25, 2016–Jun 25, 2017

The Contemporary Jewish Museum is pleased to announce The Yud Video Project


Expanding on the contemporary art exhibition From Generation to Generation: Inherited Memory and Contemporary Art’s focus on recollections and reconstructions of the past, The Yud Video Project’s theme is memory. Through the format of video and ever-accessible technology, moments are now recorded with the utmost ease and then translated into saved memories. However, edited video has tremendous power in recreating, rethinking, and reconstructing these very same moments. For this exhibition, submissions were encouraged to explore the unique ways memory is portrayed through video as an art form. Artists of all backgrounds were welcomed and encouraged to apply.

Videos selected from the submissions by the curatorial staff are available for viewing during Museum hours in the Stephen and Maribelle Leavitt Yud Gallery, one of the most beautiful gallery spaces in The CJM’s Daniel Libeskind designed museum.
