Inspired by the Jewish tradition of dialogue and debate, Unorthodox presents 55 cross-generational contemporary artists from around the world whose practices mix forms and genres without concern for artistic conventions. The large-scale group exhibition, featuring over 200 works, resists cultural and artistic uniformity to highlight art’s key role in defying rules and traditions. United by a spirit of independence and individuality, the Unorthodox artists explore a range of themes including social and political values, religion, trauma, identity, and the human figure.
