Exhibits Oct. 19, 2017-Feb. 4-2018:
I AM THIS: Art by Oregon Jewish Artists, curated by Bruce Guenther, has been organized to showcase work by four generations of artists born Jewish, associated with or living in Portland, and navigating the complexity of aesthetics and self, making and being. The exhibition provides a platform to explore the role of identity and religion in modern art, as first articulated in the writings of the mid-century American art critic Harold Rosenberg.
Munich to Portland, A Painting Saves a Family: On view in OJMCHE’s East Gallery are two paintings by German artist Otto Stein that tell a complex and mysterious story of a family’s desperate flight from Nazi Germany. One painting was left in Germany — traded for a life-saving visa to Switzerland, while the other accompanied a German Jewish family, the Engelbergs, in their eventual immigration to the United States. After an international search in 2016 the two paintings on view at OJMCHE, both haunting, dusky portraits of an unknown young woman, were brought together.
