Exhibitions

We are thrilled to be bringing a series of exceptional exhibitions to JW3 this season:


Tues 30 May - Wed 28 June


Moments of Expulsion

Free

Sheets of distressed canvas suspended from rusted butcher hooks, torn scraps of fabric, twisted corroded metal and remnants of domestic life; Jo Scorah’s sculptures explore the emotional impact of conflict and displacement, the destruction of home and the search for refuge. A descendent of Syrian Jews forced leave Aleppo in the 1920s due to persecution, Scorah draws parallels between the disintegration of culture, community and home experienced by her grandparents and the present day assault on Aleppo and its resultant migration crisis.

Tues 9 May - Mon 29 May


Holocaust by Bullets
Uncovering the Nazi Massacres in Eastern Europe 1941-44

Free

Between 1941 and 1944, over 2 million Jews were massacred when Nazi Germany invaded the Soviet Union. Until recently, this chapter of Holocaust history was relatively unknown. In 2004, Father Patrick Desbois initiated an ongoing effort to thoroughly research it. His ‘Yahad - In Unum’ research teams ask the aging witnesses to share their memories and videotape their testimony, in order to identify and record each site of mass execution of Jews, Roma and other victims, to make sure that their traces do not disappear from the earth and that they can be respectfully memorialised. This exhibition by Yahad - In Unum has been seen by hundreds of thousands of people across the world. We are proud to be bringing it to the UK for the first time, exclusively at JW3. Join Father Patrick Desbois, the founder of Yahad - In Unum, for a special keynote lecture on Tuesday 9 May at 7.30pm (£12, £10 web advance) - Father Patrick Desbois in conversation with Trudy Gold. See the related event Reflections on a Mass Grave, 23 May.


Sun 4 June - Sun 18 June


The Giant Dolls’ House Project

Free

An ongoing collaborative arts project, this installation is comprised of a collection of single-room dolls’ houses created inside empty shoeboxes. No constraints are placed on what participants can do within their box so that each room acts as a personal notion of domestic space, encapsulating the dreams and memories of its creator. The shoeboxes are brought together and interconnected with ropes, ladders and ramps to form a community, a patchwork of ideas, shapes and patterns, which reflects the diversity of every individual’s expression of home. The curator of the project is Dr. Catja de Haas, and Lala Thorpe of Artescape has collaborated on the installation.
If you would like to contribute towards this participatory installation please email will@jw3.org.uk for more details.

Tues 6 June - Sun 18 June


Higher View: From Aleppo to Jerusalem

Free

Ezri Tarazi uses the form of the coffee table to explore the multi-layered histories and cultures of his home city, Jerusalem. Through this everyday object, a symbol of hospitality, friendship and sharing, Tarazi considers the city through its topography, boundaries, archaeology, social complexity and his own family’s journey to Jerusalem from Aleppo. Using a variety of mediums, materials and conceptual approaches, the works come together to investigate this ancient, complex ever-shifting city. Exhibited alongside will be works by Haim Parnas from his Sincere Objects series, combining everyday objects with found sculptural materials.Originally exhibited at the Tower of David Museum of the History of Jerusalem.
