Read updates on her major project: Reading the Landscape, the Joyce Kozloff lecture and tour she organized for her students at CSUDH, a presentation she made in February at the 2018 College Art Association’s national conference, and her trip in December to Southeast Asia including Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia.
In celebration of Jewish art and artists, USC Hillel is hosting Bread & Salt, a exhibition organized by the Jewish Artists Initiative (JAI) – opening Sunday, April 8th, 4:00 to 6:00 p.m.
Gilah’s painting, EKEV #1 is included in the exhibition – part of a multi-institutional project taking place over the course of the Jewish New Year 2017 (5778) and continuing through the fall of 2018 in Southern California.
The goal of Bread & Salt is to explore contemporary, historic and ritual aspects of food. JAI has brought together a cross-section of its members to share their interpretations of food, and the role food has played in Jewish history and cultural life. The curated collection also addresses references in the Torah and the foods eaten in ancient times… as well as the role that food plays in the gatherings of friends and families.
Gilah had the great pleasure of hosting Joyce Kozloff as visiting artist for her university, CSUDH.
On March 6 in Ballroom B of the Loker Student Union, Joyce presented a public lecture on the last 25 years of her cartographic art, followed by a lecture surveying public art generally, as well as conducting a critique of work in progress for Gilah’s Mural Class.
Friday, March 9 Joyce will be guiding a university van tour of public art in downtown LA, (including her own work which is displayed in the Metro) for the Mural Class who will also be given a special tour of the Metro public art in various stations conducted by Barbara Lashenick, Founder of the Metro Art Docent Council.
Additionally, along with current exhibitions, MOCA curator Anna Katz will be giving CSUDH students an expository tour of the murals on the exterior walls of MOCA.
Gilah is giving a presentation of her article, Artist as Scientist in a Reflective Universe: A Process of Discovery at the 2018 CAA/College Art Association Conference being held at the Los Angeles Convention Center, February 21 – 24. She will be presenting on Friday, February 23, 4:00 – 5:30 in Room 501.
