Join the Jewish Artists Initiative (JAI) and The USC Initiative for Israeli Arts and Humanities as we talk about curators' responsibilities today, Israeli art in Los Angeles, and art collecting as Tikkun Olam, with Israeli-American curator Sagi Refael

Building on a previous talk exploring the roles and possibilities of curation, Refael asks us to consider: Who Needs Curators #2? He will discuss his curatorial practice as a form of artistic expression, social and cultural commentary, and a commitment to bridging the worlds of art and education.
