Dwelling
in a Time of Plagues

A Jewish creative response to real-world plagues of our time

Passover 2021

Dwelling in a Time of Plagues is a Jewish creative response to real-world plagues of our time. Collectively, the commissions in this constellation of art projects around North America grapple with contemporary crises: the global pandemic, institutional racism, xenophobia, ageism, forced isolation, and the climate crisis.

Plagues & Liberation

Coinciding with the holiday of Passover, during which we remember the 10 Plagues visited upon the Egyptians, the works for “Dwelling in a Time of Plagues” reinterpret the themes of Passover in response to our times and our unique partners. New works generated by Jewish artists and creatives include outdoor sculptures, murals, essays, audio pieces, videos, and digital art experiences online. Each piece responds to its medium and host community specifically, and to our collective plight as Jews and as human beings.

We invite you to dwell with us in these physical and virtual pieces for our times.
