PopUp Exhibition | Noa Bar Gabai on Orientalism in Israeli Culture

Oct 7, 2015 @ 5:00 am - 6:00 am


Noa Bar Gabai is a doctoral candidate in Comparative Literature at UCLA. Her dissertation focuses on “Messianism and Masortiyut: The Poetics of Traditionalism in Mizrahi Hebrew”.

In this PopUp Exhibition, Noa will put “orientalist” Jewish art and objects from Yemen and North Africa that are part of The Magnes Collection in conversation with her research.

About the PopUp Exhibition Series

Each week, UC Berkeley faculty and students, visiting artists and other notable guests present brief lectures focused on selected treasures from the The Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life. One speaker and one object at the time, these “flash” exhibitions include the opportunity to view the art and artifacts discussed intimately and up close.

Bring your own lunch, enjoy complimentary refreshments, and take part in an exciting learning program, free and open to the public. Close-up view of collections included.
