A Collage of Customs
February 10 @ 5:30 pm - May 29 @ 7:00 pm
Artist Mark Podwal creates imaginative and inventive interpretations of woodcuts from a 16th-century Sefer Minhagim (Book of Customs). Complementing Podwal’s 26 archival prints are a selection of Sefrei Minhagim from the Klau Library of HUC-JIR, as well as ritual objects from the Skirball’s collection that relate to images in the exhibition.
*A Collage of Customs: Iconic Jewish Woodcuts Revised from the Twenty-First Century includes images of the prints and their sources as well as insightful accompanying text by the artist. The book, published by HUC Press, is available with a donation of $18 to the Skirball Museum.
