48: Creative Quarantine

At the beginning of 2021, 48 artists were invited to work in quarantine in our beautiful studio here at Kol HaOt, in Jerusalem’s picturesque artist colony, for 48 hours each. They each worked on their own interpretation of one of the 48 paths to acquiring Torah listed in the Mishnah of Avot (6:6). The resulting works range from visual arts to poetry and music; acrobatics and dance to glass and paper, while the artists themselves had a diverse array of religious backgrounds and approaches to creation.

In November 2021, as part of the Jerusalem Biennale, we produced an exhibit which displayed the work and what brought them together during lockdown - making art with limitations on time and space.
