Sukkah City Annex: Defining & Defying Boundaries

January 16 - February 23, 2012

Presented in ASL's Dion Dion Gallery, this exhibit is co-presented by Art Saint Louis and the Museum of ImaJewnation. The aim of the project (originally presented in October 2011 at Congregation Shaare Emeth) is to seek to start a conversation about the role boundaries play in defining and defying the contemporary human condition as interpreted by the building of the traditional Jewish structure of the Sukkah, a structure that recalls the homeless exodus through the desert and the festival of harvest, pilgrimage, and homecoming. A temporary structure, the Sukkah dwelling is a perfect metaphor for defining a new kind of living amidst ever-changing boundaries.

The featured artists in Sukkah City Annex: Defining & Defying Boundaries are:

James Stone Goodman, St. Louis, MO
Leah Fuhrer Howard, St. Louis, MO
Claire Medol Hyman, University City, MO
Lyubov Muravyeva, Ballwin, MO
Josie Rosenthal, St. Louis, MO
Connie Swinson, St. Louis, MO
Sara Swinson, Maplewood, MO
Billha Zussman, Amsterdam, The Netherlands


The artworks in this small exhibition address the various issues involved in boundaries and the actual artworks will be Sukkah walls and/or pieces of walls. Works in this show are curated by ASL's Robin Hirsch and were part of the larger exhibition, Sukkah City StL: Defining & Defying Boundaries, presented at Shaare Emeth Congregation, St. Louis, MO (October 2011) and Danforth Campus of Washington University (October 17-23, 2011).
