Convoluted Beauty: In the Company of Emily Carr art lecture

Members of the Congregation and the public are invited to a hear Irene Faber, Head of Collections of the Amsterdam Jewish Museum, speak about “Convoluted Beauty: In the Company of Emily Carr” at 7 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 7. Our congregation and the B’nai Brith are sponsors of this important exhibition, which includes works by Charlotte Salomon who perished in the Holocaust.

The work of Emily Carr (1871-1945) is nationally respected for its pioneering of modernity in Western Canada. This project, curated by Lisa Baldissera, Chief Curator, Mendel Art Gallery, is the first significant presentation of Emily Carr’s work in Saskatchewan in almost 20 years. Convoluted Beauty examines Carr’s legacy through work by major international artists, including Charlotte Salomon.

“Charlotte Salomon (April 16, 1917 – October 10, 1943) was a German-Jewish artist born in Berlin. She is primarily remembered as the creator of an autobiographical series of paintings Leben? oder Theater?: Ein Singspiel (Life? or Theater?: A Song-play) consisting of 769 individual works painted between 1941 and 1943 in the south of France, while Salomon was in hiding from the Nazis. In October 1943 she was captured and deported to Auschwitz, where she and her unborn child were gassed to death by her government soon after her arrival.” Wiki

The Mendel is grateful to Tourism Saskatoon, B’nai Brith Lodge 739 and Congregation Agudas Israel, Saskatoon, for sponsoring this exhibition.
