Just Arts Spotlight on the Rose Art Museum

(03/03/20 11:00am)

  “A lynching is a murder, a group murder,” reads the quote from artist Melvin Edwards accompanying his piece, “Nigerian Diamond,” on the ground floor of the Rose Art Museum. This piece, affixed to the wall and made of welded steel, was created in 1978 as part of a series begun over a decade earlier. Edwards’ Lynch Fragments series consists of sculptures made from recovered steel objects and recalls the “metaphorical significance of these items as instruments of oppression,” per the piece’s explanation on the wall at the Rose. 

Behind the scenes of ‘Shtisel’

(11/26/19 11:00am)

 On Oct. 29, I received a Branda notification that said some of the actors from “Shtisel” would be coming to Brandeis on Nov. 21. I practically jumped out of my chair and immediately got tickets. I haven’t even seen both seasons of “Shtisel,” an Israeli television drama available on Netflix, but I have seen enough to recognize its brilliance. For three weeks all I could talk about was this event, this small opportunity to be in the same room as Giti (Shira Haas), Ruchami (Neta Riskin) and Libbi (Hadas Yaron). 

‘Oy!’ will make your zayde laugh

(11/12/19 11:00am)

I wasn’t sure what to expect going into “Oy!” on its Nov. 7 opening night. I was certainly not expecting the first thing I saw to be a bunch of boss-ladies (and Lucian Dobroszycki ’23) in utterly fabulous pantsuits, but that’s what I got, and I am not complaining. I would like to dedicate this entire opening paragraph to costume designer Kat Lawrence ’21 for the many superb pantsuits and blazers in this show, as well as the heels that Shoshi Finkel ’20 wore in the scene, “Can This Marriage Be Saved.”
