Jewish Art Around Town…Nira Pereg

While the Ann Loeb Bronfman Gallery may be THE place to see Jewish art and Jewish artists, there are a number of other DC area art museums and galleries that show Jewish artists. Take the Hirshhorn, for example, where you can currently see 67 Bows, a video piece by Israeli artist Nira Pereg which is now showing at the museum’s Black Box.

The video, which consists of flamingos moving to a soundtrack of gun shots, is, according to the Washington Post, “a pretty and disturbing metaphor for violence.”

If the flamingos alone don’t entice you to go see the piece, Nira Pereg will be at the Hirshhorn, speaking about 67 Bows  and her other work on October 4 at 7 PM. You can find more information here.

If you can’t wait until October 4 to get a Jewish art fix, come to the Ann Loeb Bronfman Gallery this Thursday (September 22) at 6 PM for the opening of our next exhibition One Foot In America: The Works of Eugeen Van Mieghem.
