    Intersctions: Reading the Space features Iranian, American and Australian artists

    Bay Area - San Francisco Sunday - October 23, 2005     12:00 PM

    Intersections: Reading the Space

    Three women—reflecting three different religions, using different media, working on different continents—use text to explore the possibility of change and exchange in a new exhibition at The Contemporary Jewish Museum


    Three media, three women, three religions, three continents. Over the course of one year, a length of cloth made three trips around the world to the studios of Australian artist Irene Barberis, Iranian-born Parastou Forouhar, now living in exile in Germany, and American artist Jane Logemann. All three women use abstractions of religious text and language as both theme and medium in their work. With no rules or limits, each woman worked on the cloth in turn, negotiating individual and cultural differences and exploring the possibilities of change and exchange. The result of this artistic dialogue, The Joint Work, is the centerpiece of a new art exhibition Intersections: Reading the Space on view in its only U.S. venue at The Contemporary Jewish Museum October 23, 2005 through February 26, 2006. The exhibition also features works by the individual artists who share an interest in challenging issues of patriarchal faiths through the voices of women. The collection of individual works features non-linguistic images from text, allowing audiences to “read the space” whether the alphabets used are familiar or not.

    WHAT: Intersections: Reading the Space – an exhibition that features the collaborative and individual work of three women artists from three continents, three cultural backgrounds and three religions.

    Free Screening of "Seeds"

    California - Santa Barbara Sunday - October 23, 2005     03:00 PM



    Sunday 23rd October, 3pm

    Campbell Hall, University of California, Santa Barbara

    Called "…a spectacular film…truly impressive" by CNN’s Judy Woodruff, this award-winning documentary offers an intimate and candid glimpse of the incredible experiences at the heart of Seeds of Peace ( Every summer, young leaders from four conflict regions meet at the Seeds of Peace International Camp in Maine. For three life-changing weeks, they learn to share their dreams and fears, listen to opposing views, see beyond prejudices, and eventually to respect each other as individuals as they attempt to build the one thing they all strive for: a future based on peace, prosperity and reconciliation.

    The screening will be followed by panel discussion with the co-directors, Marjan Safinia and Joseph Boyle, as well as a young Israeli and Palestinian who attended the Seeds of Peace International Camp.

    SEEDS premiered in June 2004 at the AFI Documentary Festival: Silverdocs and has shown at over 40 major film festivals around the world.
