Israel/Palestine: An Act of Seeing

an exhibit of Mocha Jean Herrup’s photos from her work in Israel and the occupied West Bank. “I traveled abroad in 2013 to research Israeli film, better connect to Judaism, and enjoy queer Tel Aviv,” says Herrup. “I came back devastated, and with a different worldview. It has taken a while but I am ready to present the layers of my reactions.” The exhibit – “photographs of prime ministers, Academy Award-nominated filmmakers, tear gas being shot from behind an illegal Jewish settlement, queer performance, students in Ramallah, a cup of espresso, organized into a series of diptychs … that recognizes racialized seeing and passive acts of demarcation” Herrup will discuss the work, and her experience, Sunday, Oct. 23, 3-5pm at the Friends Meeting House, 3701 E. MLK. Oct. 14-29.
