Main aisle of the Spanish Synagogue
April 6 – June 4, 2006, open daily 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. except Saturdays and Jewish holidays

The project of young Canadian artist, Melissa Shiff, offers an alternative look at a traditional Jewish wedding ceremony. Led by an effort to enliven the rigid ritual practice that has remained unchanged for centuries and the desire to give it a new meaning that can be sustainable in today’s plurality of opinions and identities, the artist has decided to prepare her own wedding as an experimental ‘live performance’.

This is the story of a man who devoted his life to advocating ideals in the real world. A man who prioritised putting the ideas of Masaryk’s Czechoslovakia into practice before pursuing his own interests. A man who actively and tirelessly worked for the benefit of society. A man who managed to rise above nationalities, languages, creeds and party allegiance. A man who did not hesitate to put his own life at risk in the struggle against the enemy. A man who never gave up.

The items from Jewish households and synagogues that have been selected for this exhibition, particularly from the Jewish Museum in Prague’s collection of manuscripts, are not prescribed religious appurtenances. Pictures or texts-pictures that were made as an expression of folk piety at the margins of the canonical rituals of religious life, they became established in time as a necessary addition to, ornament for and commentary on such rituals.

Aleš Veselý - Three Gates: Project for PInkas Street in Prague

From 20. 01. 2005 to 13. 02. 2005

Pinkasova street

When I first spoke with Aleš Veselý at the Forum 2000 conference four years ago in Prague about how to give new life to the street by Pinkas Synagogue, he suggested drawing up a ­project for this. I considered it appropriate that he should be the one to complete Pinkas Street with his sculptures, for he is a person with a personal Jewish experience and an outstanding artist of international renown. “Three Gates,” as Aleš Veselý titled his project, is already a work, at the study stage, that invites many interpretations. It is indisputable that it could enrich the space of Pinkas Street in every sense possible, and, moreover, provide a deep experience that is ­characteristic of the artwork itself.
