February 28, 2011
Time:Noon-2 p.m.
Description:Author and art historian Dr. Alec Mishory discusses the prevalence of the sacrifice of Isaac in Israeli art. Sacrifice and martyrdom play a significant part in Zionist mythology. The sacrifice of Isaac became a common theme expressing ideas of self-sacrifice and extreme religious devotion. Many Israeli sculptors and painters have treated the subject, their works manifesting a crossing of historical and stylistic periods.

Mishory is a lecturer in art history at the Open University in Tel Aviv. A well-known author and art critic, he is widely published in academic journals and his art critiques are featured in newspapers and on Israel Radio. His books include "Still Life: From Depicted Objects to Real Objects," "Joseph Budko and H.N. Bialik's Complete Works Edition of 1923: Modern Hebrew Poetry and Art in Harmony" and "Lo and Behold: Visual Aspects of Zionist Myths in Israeli Culture." (2000). He is a 2010-2011 Schusterman visiting Israeli professor at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
