ADMISSION: This online program is free
Join us for another Sunday Story exploring the architects, painters, and sculptors whose designs are inspired by transcendence. Through the work of Mark Rothko, Daniel Libeskind, Ruth Asawa, and Maya Lin, we will explore the combination of awe, fear, beauty, frailty, and mortality present in designs inspired by transcendent experiences.
Beyond Belief (Jun 28, 2013–Oct 27, 2013) was an expansive exhibition exploring the spiritual dimensions of modern art, especially as seen through the lens of Jewish theological concepts. The exhibition featured forty-eight internationally-known artists whose work—painting, sculpture, photography, video, and installation art—are all drawn from SFMOMA’s outstanding collection. Ranging from a 1914 abstraction by Dutch artist Piet Mondrian to a luminous 1960 abstraction by Mark Rothko and oversized prayer beads by contemporary artist Zarina, Beyond Belief provided an engaging alternative that prioritizes spirituality in the reading of art.
During The CJM's temporary closure, we are providing Facebook Live video presentations that explore Jewish culture, history, art, and ideas. Sit back, relax, and enjoy recent installments of our popular Sunday Stories series.
