The Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art (HVCCA) hosts a presentation of Dafna Shalom’s video trilogy titled Yamim Noraim (Fearful Days) from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 26. Following the screening, guests will be invited to stay for an artist talk and reception.
The 30-minute video trilogy Yamim Noraim (Fearful Days) was made as a “time-specific” piece referring to the introspective and prayerful Hebrew month of Elul that ushers in the High Holy Days of Rosh Ha-Shana and Yom Kippur. It is a time when Jews reflect upon their relationships toward their fellow man and the divine.
Shalom was born in Israel to Moroccan and Yemeni parents, and is based in Tel Aviv and New York City. Yamim Noraim was first shown at the HVCCA as part of Peekskill Project 2006. Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art is located at 1701 Main St., Peekskill. RSVP: [email protected]
