Over the last 100 years, Jews have left a tremendous mark on the contemporary art scene in Toronto, as artists, curators and philanthropists. These impacts parallel American achievements in the post-war era. The presentation will note some of the influential figures in the modern era of Jewish art practice and then will trace Jewish identity and expression through the work of American and Canadian artists and institution-builders. It will note the role of Jews as institution builders. We will first recognize the ways that artists deployed visual art to make sense of the impossibility and horror of the Holocaust and its aftermath, considering works by Louise Nevelson, Eva Hesse, Adolph Gottlieb and Leon Golub. Canadian artists Aba Bayefsky, Sorel Etrog, and Daniel Solomon brought Jewish approaches to modernist practices, each strongly rooted in their Judaism.
