Across Divides: Borders and Boundaries in Contemporary Art

Grounded in the description in the biblical Book of Genesis that the world came into being through a series of divisions—light and darkness, day and night, sea and land, animals and human beings—this exhibition explores how individuals and communities maintain their distinctiveness, yet also reach across divides. The artists address boundaries that may be physical or spiritual, exist in law or in tradition, and traverse secular and religious life as they confront issues of gender, geographies and Jewish, cultural and national identities. This exhibition of 28 works by 17 artists was organized by guest curator Reba Wulkan. As a member of the American Alliance of Museums, Hebrew Home at Riverdale by RiverSpring Health is committed to publicly exhibiting its art collection throughout its 32-acre campus, including Derfner Judaica Museum and a sculpture garden overlooking the Hudson River and Palisades. Derfner Judaica Museum + The Art Collection provide educational and cultural programming for all visitors, including residents of the Hebrew Home, their families and the general public who come from throughout New York City, its surrounding suburbs and elsewhere. RiverSpring Health is a nonprofit, non-sectarian geriatric organization serving more than 12,000 older adults through its resources and community service programs. Museum hours: Sunday–Thursday, 10:30 a.m.–4:30 p.m. Art Collection and exhibitions open daily, 10:30 a.m.–4:30 p.m. Call 718 581.1596 for holiday hours or to schedule group tours, or for further information visit our website at http://riverspringhealth.org/art
