The Conney Conference on Jewish Arts: The Jewish Arts in an Expanded Field

March 27 @ 1:00 pm - March 30 @ 4:00 pm

We are pleased to announce the 8th biennial Conney Conference on Jewish Arts! This year’s conference will be held at the at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (Pyle Center), celebrating 18 years since the founding of The Conney Project on the Jewish Arts.

 The Jewish Arts in an Expanded Field

The conference will address themes of interdisciplinarity, diversity and intersectionality in the changing landscape of the Jewish Arts. In a moment in which we are experiencing a generational shift among Jewish identifying artists to a more inclusive and polyvocal, fluid understanding of Jewish identity, the politics of Jewishness are foregrounded in astounding new ways. From graphic novels to digital art and highly charged dance and performance, to theater, music and literature, we see both a return to ritual and a search for new narratives of the contemporary Jewish experience. The 8th iteration of the Conney Conference on Jewish Arts will focus on the remarkable evolution of the field as it has expanded into the future while acknowledging its own histories.

There will be a special tribute lecture for Marv and Babe Conney by Professor Ori Soltes, Goldman Professorial Lecturer in Theology and Fine Arts at Georgetown University.
