Reboot Ideas Presents: The Art of Visual Activism
Photographer Gillian Laub, whose exhibition Family Matters is currently on view at The Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco, joined curator Maya Benton at the museum on March 12 to explore two decades of Laub’s work and what it means to be an artist in this moment of increasingly polarizing politics. This conversation is the first in a 2023 Reboot Ideas series of three events in the San Francisco Bay Area, supported by the Jewish Community Federation and Endowment Fund. The series, “Art as Counterpoint to Antisemitism” foregrounds the role of arts and culture as acts of resistance to a rising tide of antisemitism. Watch the event here.
