Announcing the Los Angeles Six Points Fellows!
Having launched two fantastically successful cohorts of emerging Jewish artists in New York City, the Six Points Fellowship is branching out: now in Los Angeles! Read all about the new LA fellows!
September 6, 2011Dear Friends,We are so excited to announce our inaugural cohort of Los Angeles Fellows! Our nine extremely talented Fellows are: Nina T. Becker (Jonas), Will Deutsch, Jessie Kahnweiler, Sasha Perry, Paul Ratner, Corrie Siegel, Kristen Smiarowski, Tali Tadmor and Yelena Zhelezov. We invite you to learn more about the artists and their work on our website.The Fellowship officially begins in November 2011. Over the course of the two-year Fellowship, the artists will present their work through exhibitions, concerts, performances and public installations throughout Los Angeles. Their projects range from a film exploring the true story of a Jewish Indian Chief, to a dance about historic memory of the Holocaust, to a Yiddish Swing Cabaret entitled “Ella Fitzgeraldberg.” We encourage you to come join us in the next two years as we watch their projects develop, and participate in the presentations of their work.
The Six Points Fellowship is a partnership of Avoda Arts, JDub and the Foundation for Jewish Culture, and is made possible in Los Angeles with significant support from The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles, the Jewish Community Foundation of Los Angeles and the Righteous Persons Foundation.Best wishes,The Six Points Team
