Hanna Senesh

Museum of Jewish Heritage - July 29 – August 18, 2019

An award-winning play. Written and Directed by David Schechter. Developed in collaboration with Lori Wilner. Based upon the diaries and poems of Hannah Senesh, translated from the Hungarian by Marta Cohn and Peter Hay. Music composed and arranged by Steven Lutvak.

On the eve of the Holocaust, many left Europe for Palestine to save themselves. Very few went back to save others.

This one-woman show tells the true story of Hannah Senesh, the heroic young Jewish woman who escaped from Axis-allied Hungary in 1939 to the safety of British Mandate Palestine. There she joined Haganah and then bravely volunteered for a daring Special Operations mission to parachute back into Europe to save Jews from the Holocaust. Hannah’s story and indomitable spirit, along with the moving diary and poetry that she left behind, serve as an enduring inspiration to people everywhere standing up to the powers of hatred and oppression.

 

Mika Rottenberg: Easypieces

New Museum - June 26- September 15

This exhibition marks the first New York solo museum presentation of work by New York–based artist Mika Rottenberg.

Employing absurdist satire to address the critical issues of our time, Rottenberg creates videos and installations that offer subversive allegories for contemporary life. Her works interweave documentary elements and fiction, and often feature protagonists who work in factory-like settings to manufacture goods ranging from cultured pearls (NoNoseKnows, 2015) to the millions of brightly colored plastic wholesale items sold in Chinese superstores (Cosmic Generator, 2017).

 

ZAZ10TS presents: Nature of Wonder

10 Times Square - June 13- September 2

Titled “Nature of Wonder” by Artist Shony Rivnay provides a glimpse into obscurity, freedom, and a natural curiosity that we all experience in our creative lives. It is an opportunity to think, but also to let go of thinking. It is a pathway into joyous viewing and a simple understanding of how things work.

OPENING RECEPTION: June 13, 6-8PM

 

What's Love Got to Do With It?

The Drawing Center - August 15 - September 16

Group exhibition organized by Rosario Güiraldes and Lisa Sigal, Open Sessions Curators

Don't miss Keren Benbenisty's work in this group exhibition!

Open Sessions 2018–2020: What’s Love Got to Do with It? is an exhibition by the thirty-one artists who are participating in Open Sessions, a two-year program at The Drawing Center that provides opportunities for selected artists from around the world to contextualize their work in terms of drawing through conversation, public programs, and exhibitions. Featuring new drawings and drawing adjacent works by a diverse and international group of artists, who come from myriad perspectives and geographic locations, ranging from the Americas to Africa, Asia and the Middle East, What's Love Got to Do With It? takes as its theme, the universal discourse of love, which, the curators contend, is as democratic as drawing is.
