George Segal: Works From the Bible
Genesis, a work of Hebrew antiquity, is a fundamental inheritance of our civilization. Whatever one's religious perspective on this first book of the Hebrew Bible, Genesis is extraordinary as a rendering of family relationships. That is certainly the understanding that the artist brings to Genesis in George Segal: Works from the Bible.
A prime goal of the Skirball Cultural Center is exploring intersections between values born of Jewish experience and those shaped by the experience of peoples among whom Jews have lived, to offer a more nuanced human image. George Segal's five striking sculptures, drawn from his interwoven Jewish and American sensibilities, are eloquently congruent with the Skirball spirit.
