The International Association of Art Critics-United States (AICA-USA) announced that The Sexuality Spectrum at the HUC-JIR Museum in New York has been nominated as the best thematic museum show in New York, together with exhibitions at the Metropolitan Museum, Museum of Modern Art, Whitney Museum, Brooklyn Museum, and New Museum. The awards ceremony will be held in New York City in April.
The Sexuality Spectrum offers a groundbreaking exploration of sexual orientation through the creativity of over fifty international contemporary artists exploring a broad range of subjects, including the evolving social and religious attitudes toward sexuality; issues of alienation, marginalization, and inclusion; the impact on the family, child-rearing, and life stages; violence and persecution; AIDS/HIV; and the influence of the LGBTQI community on the Jewish and larger world. This exhibition exemplifies the spirit of the College-Institute’s and the Reform Movement’s commitment to free and open inquiry, inclusivity and outreach, and advocacy on behalf of human rights and the eradication of sexual discrimination.
