Faces: Weaving Indian Jewish Narratives

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This workshop explores Benjamin's Fulbright-funded project, Faces: Weaving Indian Jewish Narratives. Faces raises Western awareness about the long standing history of the Indian Jewish communities in India by documenting, using photography and painting, the individual faces and stories of this ancient group and their heritage before their existence becomes a cultural relic of India.

Siona Benjamin

Siona Benjamin is a painter originally from Bombay. Her work - exhibited in the US, Europe and Asia - reflects being brought up Jewish in a predominantly Hindu and Muslim India. Her paintings combine the imagery of her past with the role she plays in America today, making a mosaic inspired by Indian miniature paintings, Sephardic icons and the artistic traditions of her Bene Israel heritage.
