Digital Diasporas with Lauren Prousky

Hosted By: The Museum of Jewish Montreal

ย This session will feature an artist talk, Q&A, and preview of the museumโ€™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 Laurenโ€™s practice, her experiences as an artist amid the pandemic, and her ongoing series, ๐˜›๐˜ฐ ๐˜ฃ๐˜ถ๐˜ช๐˜ญ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜บ ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ๐˜ถ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ๐˜ต๐˜ด ๐˜ช๐˜ด ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜จ๐˜ข๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ ๐˜ธ๐˜ฉ๐˜ข๐˜ตโ€™๐˜ด ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ. As the basis of her forthcoming MJM digital exhibition, this series reflects on a particular โ€œJewish impulse of collectingโ€ that provokes memory, storytelling, family ties, and the artistโ€™s relationship with facets of cultural Judaism. By using found objects, Laurenโ€™s works โ€“ spanning readymade sculptures, textiles, paintings, and installations โ€“ are collectively informed by the organized chaos of collections that she was surrounded by throughout her own upbringing.
