Artist Salon Fall Series: Protest and Possibility

  • The Jewish Studio Project 940 Dwight Way #13B Berkeley, CA United States (map)

Interfaith and Intersectional Art with Arielle Tonkin

Join us for an inspiring evening of interfaith exploration and conversation, as Arielle Tonkin offers a behind-the-scenes look at a multi-year project called “orienting actions,” currently on view in Boston. Arielle weaves, travels, performs, exhibits, and hosts conversations with a hybrid ritual object, an object which materializes a series of questions about the relationship between a Muslim prayer rug and a Jewish prayer shawl in protest of the Muslim travel ban. What [ritual] objects do [I] [you] use, and how do they [orient] [position] the body for action in the world?

Arielle Tonkin is a conceptual artist based in the Bay Area and Chicago, and a collaborator with the Muslim Jewish Arts Fellowship.
