The Blue Door

Israel’s Diversity and Dilemma

Hank Paper
Maine Jewish Museum – Jody Sataloff History and Art Pavilion
November 4 2022 – January 5 2023

The Blue Door: Israel’s Diversity and Dilemma — showing for the first time — speaks to Israel’s very current moment, especially where issues of democracy and annexation are concerned. It addresses the question of whether and how Israel might continue to define itself as both a democracy and a Jewish state. While each image stands on its own aesthetically, the story the exhibition tells is educational, inspiring, existential, and a tad mystical.

Paper is a longtime member of the Kehler Liddell Gallery in New Haven. His work has been exhibited in many galleries and museums (including – several times each – in juried shows at the Mattatuck, Fairfield, and Woodstock Museums, and at the New Britain Museum of American Art). His exhibit John Coltrane, Ascension spent five months at the African American Museum in Philadelphia, as well as at other venues in Connecticut and in New York City.
