Virtual Tour of Tucson’s Jewish History Museum & Holocaust History Center
April 6 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm$10
The Tucson Jewish History Museum & Holocaust History Center is located in northern Arizona about 65 miles from Mexico. ASYLUM/ASILO, currently featured in their Contemporary Human Rights Gallery, seeks to weave a dialogue from the personal histories of individuals who have fled horrific situations in their home countries only to face an asylum system on the US-Mexico border turned into chaos by the government’s own making.
Paired with CLAMOR IN THE DESERT / CLAMOR EN EL DESIERTO, a Sukkah installation by Argentina-based artist Mirta Kupferminc in collaboration with LABA: A Laboratory for Jewish Culture which is part of the national project, “Dwelling in a Time of Plagues,” a Council of American Jewish Museums’ new outdoor art initiative.
Virtually tour these timely, poignant exhibits, rooted within this Tucson venue’s borderlands context.
