Our Art Gallery | Tribeca Synagogue

Our Art Gallery

TriBeCa Synagogue has always been a strong supporter of the arts given that many of our members are artists, photographers, musicians and composers.

Accordingly, our synagogue features a gallery space with exciting openings throughout the year. Our gallery showcases art from around the world, and our social hall includes high-end gallery lighting to help focus attention on the artwork on show.

On Exhibit Now

Archie Rand: “The 54 Chapter Paintings”  on display until November 20, 2015
     please make an appointment to view with the office :  212 966-7141

 

The Tribeca Synagogue is pleased to present an exhibition of the 54 Chapter Paintings by Archie Rand. Each painting is based on the weekly parsha and exhibited in order. Displayed for the first time as a solo exhibition, this body of work was first shown at the Jewish Museum in 1989.

 
“A useful date from which to mark the onset of postmodern American Jewish art is 1989. The year that saw the Tiananmen Square massacre, the fall of the Berlin Wall, and the premiere of Seinfeld was also the year Archie Rand exhibited at the Jewish Museum in New York a series of fifty-four paintings inspired by the yearly cycle of Torah readings. Jewish artists were by then no strangers to the upper echelons of the American art world, but baldly Jewish iconography was.” - Vincent Brook

On Thursday November 19th the Synagogue will host an event celebrating Rand’s exhibition and the release of his new book The 613 (Penguin Random House, 2015). Mr. Rand will give a short talk followed by a book signing and a reception in the gallery.

The 613

"Part circus ringmaster and part vaudevillian, Archie Rand takes us on a rat-a-tat arts-ride that mixes biblical, comic book and movie history in which danger leads to violence on its way to melodrama that plunges into tragedy; a pouring out of panels that provoke, compel, resonate, and go on resonating." -Jules Feiffer
