Wild: Stories of a community pushing boundaries

Exhibition and Shows

9 Sep 2019 to 28 Feb 2020

At the Jewish Museum of Australia, they collect their community’s stories. With this exhibition, invites you to explore the ways the community have been wild.

In partnership with the Festival of Jewish Arts and Music, themed ‘walk on the wild side’ for Lou Reed’s declaration of subversion and survival, ‘Wild: Stories of a community pushing boundaries’ explores what it was like to create a new Jewish community in Australia, on Aboriginal land; the rich history of Jewish activism; and the ways in which Jews have expressed themselves creatively – through art, music and television – in ways that push boundaries.

Come learn about how Melbourne Jews have taken a stand, made a claim and created change in art, politics and identity.

Curated by Dr Jordana Silverstein, Wild: Stories of a community pushing boundaries will be on display at the Jewish Museum of Australia from 1 September 2019 – 28 February 2020.
