Contemporary artists and designers focus on Judaism as a lived experience by transforming the physical acts of ritual into new forms. Artists Johanna Bresnick and Michael Cloud discuss their provacative work, From Mouth to Mouth, 2006, and the idea of achieving a union with sacred text.
From the exhibition "Reinventing Ritual: Contemporary Art and Design for Jewish Life" that was at the Jewish Museum, New York, September 13, 2009 - February 7, 2010 http://thejewishmuseum.org/exhibition...
Reinventing Ritual: Contemporary Art and Design for Jewish Life at the Jewish Museum, New York, surveys the explosion of new Jewish rituals, art, and objects that has occurred since the mid-1990s. This period is defined by the urge to discover beauty and meaning in first premises--the roots and ruptures--when ritual could be radical. This attitude of innovation is shared by a wide range of artists inclusive of generation, nationality, and religion.
