In That Case: Havruta in Contemporary Art

The Contemporary Jewish Museum

In That Case: Havruta in Contemporary Art--Oxossi Ayofemi and Risa Wechsler. Visual artist Oxossi Ayofemi and her chosen havruta partner, groundbreaking Stanford physicist Risa Wechsler, infuse the concept of dark matter and dark energy with notions of power, blackness, diaspora, economy, and utopian imagination. What if our city and economy were built from a metaphor of abundance instead of scarcity?


This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock had to say about In That Case: Havruta in Contemporary Art :

Drawing from the tradition of “havruta”—the study of religious texts by people in pairs–The Contemporary Jewish Museum offers this ongoing series of commissions featuring artists paired with contemporary thinkers from diverse fields. Up now: Visual artist Oxossi Ayofemi and Stanford physicist Risa Wechsler present “Black Matter,” an exploration of dark energy, apropos of these times.
