Digital Diasporas with Lauren Prousky

Hosted By: The Museum of Jewish Montreal

 This session will feature an artist talk, Q&A, and preview of the museum’s partnership with the artist, including a digital exhibition and experiential art workshop.


Join Lauren and the curatorial team at the Museum of Jewish Montreal to learn more about Lauren’s practice, her experiences as an artist amid the pandemic, and her ongoing series, 𝘛𝘰 𝘣𝘶𝘪𝘭𝘥 𝘵𝘪𝘯𝘺 𝘮𝘰𝘯𝘶𝘮𝘦𝘯𝘵𝘴 𝘪𝘴 𝘵𝘰 𝘨𝘢𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘳 𝘸𝘩𝘢𝘵’𝘴 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘳𝘦. As the basis of her forthcoming MJM digital exhibition, this series reflects on a particular “Jewish impulse of collecting” that provokes memory, storytelling, family ties, and the artist’s relationship with facets of cultural Judaism. By using found objects, Lauren’s works – spanning readymade sculptures, textiles, paintings, and installations – are collectively informed by the organized chaos of collections that she was surrounded by throughout her own upbringing.
