On Sunday, October 2, the Contemporary Jewish Museum will present an installation exploring Jewlia’s archive, and her art, while considering Jewlia’s connection to faith, roots, power and beauty. The guided immersive experience inside the museum culminates in a concert produced by Yerba Buena Gardens Festical at Jesse Square (in front of the CJM) starting at 2:30pm.
The musical celebration is led by musician/composer Marika Hughes and artist and director Seth Eisen and will pay homage to Jewlia’s work, exploring her musical canon and presenting new art rooted in the pursuit of justice and learning.
Featured artists traveling from around the U.S. to perform and celebrate Jewlia include Frank London, Cynthia Taylor, Mathias Kunzli, Nina Rolle, Ianna Owens, Jeremiah Lockwood, Jason Ditzian, Shahzad Ismaily, Michael Pinkham, Ganda Suthivarikom, Jess Ivry, Dan Cantrell and other special guests.
The CJM installation is created a group of artists, friends, musicians and spiritual teachers from around the country that continue the practice through an exploration of Jewlia’s love of the Song of Songs—a poem of undomesticated freedom in a world of abundance, free of patriarchy, and a subject of Jewlia’s ongoing Queer Piyutim project. This event also marks the release of Jewlia’s posthumous album, The Ginzburg Geography on Tzadik’s Spectrum Series.
