About Caron Tabb

Caron Tabb was born in apartheid South Africa, raised on a farm in Israel from the age of eight, and has lived in the US for the last twenty years. These key biographical elements and her passion for social justice issues deeply impact her artistic practice. In addition to traditional painting and photography, Caron incorporates many found objects and unconventional materials into her work. Her conceptual mixed-media and instillation art address issues of social inequality, racial justice, and feminism as seen through the lens of her deep Jewish identity. 

Caron’s Be the Change Piece

Prisoner a-7713: Antisemitism = Racism = Hate Sliding Back in Time Or, Did We Actually Ever Move Forward?

This piece is made from  chicken wire heart and speaks to the rise of antisemitism and hate crimes, while the word "justice" will appear in many languages within the concrete base.

Be The Change: Jewishly Inspired Public Art Movement

Be the Change is a 2022-2023 art and activism initiative that is inspired by the Jewish tenet of justice and drawing from the ritualistic Jewish Tzedakah box. Taking place in Boston, Cincinnati, L.A., and online, Be the Change will help viewers connect to issues of injustice and empower them to become agents of change.

How You Can Work Together

"When I question my role as a Jewish white woman and human being today, I know that is in part to raise the level of discourse, increase empathy, and engage people in difficult conversations around a just and equal society. I feel a burning passion to use my privilege and address what it means to be an American in this day and age. My art serves as my voice and vehicle for these conversations which I hope to inspire in the viewer.  Having been a Jewish and non-profit professional for most of my life, I love working with and in the community to explore themes close to my heart, encouraging viewers to engage with and make art about these issues."
