Amanda Lundquist, artist and 2013-2014 Yiddish Book Center fellow, shares her thoughts about the role that film can play in Jewish life.

With Linda Muehlig, organizer of the exhibition and associate director for curatorial affairs
This exhibition is the first to concentrate on the work of German artist Mary Bauermeister (born 1934) during the decade she lived and worked in the United States from 1962 to 1972. Inspired by five works in SCMA's collection, and featuring loans from private and public east coast collections, the show highlights Bauermeister's signature optical lens boxes, assemblages, stone reliefs, drawings, and other works.
