The Jewish Art Salon catalyzes and celebrates contemporary art with Jewish themes. The Salon is an innovative and global community of artists, art professionals and art enthusiasts

RJeneration partners with the Jewish Art Salon to invite you to “Finding Home: “Parallels in mythology from around the world”. An event for you as the writer and teller of your own life story.

This lecture and workshop will bridge world mythologies to individual stories. Presenter: Siona Benjamin, a painter from Bombay, living in the US connects mythology to personal stories in a sensitive and though provoking way. Her work reflects her background of being brought up Jewish in a predominantly Hindu and Muslim India.

Siona will compare mythological stories like the Indian Matsya , Jonah and the fish ,Noah’s Ark , Aleksandr Pushkin’s “The tale of the fisherman” , Gilgamesh , a Babylonian myth from 2000 BC. We will discuss the science/geology of the “flood” or massive change. Participants will bring ideas and objects from home that speak of their family, culture, religion, identity, transformations. In a facilitated journey, participants will connect the parallels in mythologies of the world with their own personal stories.

6:00 – 6:30 PM – Light buffet dinner 6:30 – 8:30 PM – Program

Presenter:
Siona Benjamin is a painter from Bombay, now living in the US. Her work reflects her background of being brought up Jewish in a predominantly Hindu and Muslim India. In her paintings she combines the imagery of her past with the role she plays in America today, making a mosaic inspired by both Indian miniature paintings and Sephardic icons. She has been recently awarded a Fulbright Fellowship for an art project titled: Faces: Weaving Indian Jewish Narratives. Her NY solo exhibit will open March 6 at the Flomenhaft Gallery.

This programs are sponsored by Center Without Walls, a project of COJECO, funded by the UJA-Federation of NY and Genesis Philanthropy Group. Co-sponsored by the Tribeca Synagogue for the Arts.
