Waves of Jewish emigration of the 1970s and 1980s brought generations of artists and collectors to the US, Canada, Israel, and Europe. Among them were collectors Vladimir and Vera Torchilin, and Anna Winestein, curator of the Migration + Memory: Jewish Artists of the Russian and Soviet Empires exhibition. Hear their personal stories and historical perspectives on the cultural and creative capital of Russophone Jews in Moscow, Leningrad, and elsewhere in the USSR.
A reception with wine and light hors d'oeuvres will follow the program.
