Exhibition | From Generation to Generation | The Yud Video Project


  • The Contemporary Jewish Museum San Francisco United States (map)

Curators: Pierre-François Galpin and Sophie Schwabacher

Through the format of video and ever-accessible technology, moments are now recorded with the utmost ease and then translated into saved memories. However, edited video has tremendous power in recreating, rethinking, and reconstructing these very same moments. The Yud Video Project features twenty-five short videos that were selected among more than 700 submissions, and that altogether present a wide range of interpretation of what memory means today. For this exhibition, submissions were encouraged to explore the unique ways memory is portrayed through video as an art form. Artists of all backgrounds were welcomed and encouraged to apply.

Videos selected from the submissions by the curatorial staff are available for viewing during Museum hours in the Stephen and Maribelle Leavitt Yud Gallery, one of the most beautiful gallery spaces in The CJM’s Daniel Libeskind designed museum.
