Opening Reception September 19, 2019
Nigun | Notations on Prayer
Works by Shelby Feltoon, Stacey Friedman, and Emily Mogavero
Show runs September 1-December 30, 2019
Nigun, by emerging artists Shelby Feltoon, Stacy Friedman and Emily Mogavero explores how we visually represent and understand niggunim, repetative wordless prayer.
Shelby Feltoon: My work aims to create a space for untouchable collective memories to become personal, real, and valid.
Stacy Friedman: Inspired by old family photographs and extensive family history research, these prints are an investigation into lineage, memory, Jewish identity and community.
Emily Mogavero: Aufheben means to both destroy and preserve, to elevate and decimate. I began this series by making fifty prints from the same zinc plate, modified between each print. Introducing new elements created a spontaneous rhythmic conversation.
