“Artist in Residence” – Opening Reception of Noa Yaari’s Exhibition

Date: Thursday, October 20, 2022

Time: 4 pm

In-person: The Centre for Jewish Studies, 7th floor of the Kaneff Tower on the Keele campus, York University

“Artist in Residence” is an art project Yaari created at home for the Centre for Jewish Studies when the campus was closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It is a series of twenty colourful paintings telling a personal and communal story about fear, faith, isolation, and love. At the opening reception, we will be celebrating this project and the contribution of the arts to our community and to the social and intellectual life on campus.

Noa Yaari, Artist in Residence 18/20, 2020-2021. Ink and acrylic on paper, 23 x 30 cm. Toronto.

Dr. Noa Yaari is an artist and art-based knowledge broker. In her work, she explores combinations of words and images in academic, artistic, and daily practices. She holds a PhD in History and MA in Humanities from York University, and an MA in History and Philosophy of Science and Ideas (magna cum laude) from Tel Aviv University. In addition to her solo exhibition at the CJS, she is currently working on an art installation at the Centre for Renaissance and Reformation Studies at the University of Toronto, in which she is a Fellow. Both projects practice art-based knowledge mobilization as well as community building and placemaking on campus.
