Seven Generations

Avishai Mekonen’s Seven Generations opens at the Tisch Gallery this Thursday, February 12.

We’re not talking about the biodegradable dish soap you get at the food coop, people. This is the work of Avishai Mekonen, who’ll be giving a talk at the upper west side JCC’s Tisch Gallery this Thursday starting at 6pm, followed by the official opening. Avishai, a Six Points compatriot, has painstakingly documented, in photo and video, the complexities of Ethiopian Jewry. Tradition and modernity collide. Generations are counted backward as life is counted forward. Plain and simple: No one else is doing this.

Who’s coming? I’ll see you Thursday.

The skinny…
