In conjunction with the exhibition The Jewish Identity Project: New American Photography, The Contemporary Jewish Museum (CJM) and the Museum of the African Diaspora (MoAD) will present a lecture by Chicago-based artist Dawoud Bey. One of the country's leading portrait artists, Bey will discuss his ongoing exploration of adolescent identity through portraiture.

Bey’s collaborative photographic and audio project in The Jewish Identity Project features adolescents with Jewish backgrounds who share their personal thoughts and feelings about their racial and religious identity. Jacob is the son of a single Jewish mother; his father was from Belize. Sahai and Zenebesh were adopted from Ethiopia and converted to Judaism. Cousins Claire and Samantha share an Ojibwe (Chippewa) grandmother and Russian Jewish grandfather. The voices of these teens provide a window into their personalities and reveal their keen awareness of how they are perceived by society. Bey’s works underscore the truism that one should not make easy assumptions about another individual’s identity or heritage.
