From our series, “Zooming In: Weekly Curatorial Conversations from The Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life.”
Each week, Curators Francesco Spagnolo and Shir Kochavi present insights and connections emerging from the holdings of UC Berkeley’s Magnes Collection, one of the largest Jewish museum collections in the world. Throughout the series, guests will join them to explore Jewish art and life, one object at a time.
