Olam Haba: The World to Come, with Conceptual Artist Daniel Solomons
ENGLISH CORNER, CON LINDA JIMÉNEZ – This week’s trivia question: What happened when Orthodox Rabbi Mark Solomon told the Chief Rabbi that he was gay?
Daniel Solomons was born in Madrid in 1977 and grew up between Madrid and London, where he lived for several years and studied Graphic Arts. In 2004 he moved to Malaga, where for two years he directed a Center for Contemporary Culture. The following year he represented Spain with an art installation in Rome and Basilicata, Italy. He has won a number of national and international prizes, and his work has been shown in many cities, including London, New York, Madrid, Valencia and Seville, among others.
Olam Haba, The World to Come, his recent exhibit at Centro Sefarad-Israel in Madrid, portrays London’s diverse Jewish community, and includes sculptures, photographs and videos.
