Artist Panel: Working with Hebrew and Yiddish Type
May 18 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Join us for a virtual conversation with contemporary artists, printers, and designers who use Hebrew type in their work to explore abstract and representational perspectives on the language. As MCBA introduces Hebrew wood type to our letterpress studios, we celebrate artists whose work is based in the language. The panel is curated by Robyn Awend and moderated by Karen Schiff and features local and national artists who use both traditional and contemporary Hebrew and Yiddish type in their work. Panelists include Lynne Avadenka (MI), an artist, printmaker, and director of Detroit letterpress print shop Signal Return; Gabriella Boros (IL), a printmaker, painter, and book artist; Dr. Noam Sienna (MN), a scholar of Jewish culture and history, Hebrew calligrapher, and book artist; and Shani Avni (NY) who designs, researches, teaches, consults, writes, and lectures on Hebrew type design and typography. Moderator Karen Schiff (TX) is an artist, writer, and editor who often works between word and image.
