About

David Hartt: The Histories (Le Mancenillier) at Beth Sholom Synagogue, Elkins Park, Pennsylvania

This September, David Hartt will be the first artist to activate the Beth Sholom Synagogue, a striking Frank Lloyd Wright-designed National Historic Landmark in Elkins Park, Pennsylvania. Hartt will considers the histories of Jewish and Black diasporas in the United States through an exhibition comprising video, sculpture, music and tropical plants (notably orchids). Focusing on 19th century American composer Louis Moreau Gottschalk, the exhibition features film and photography shot in New Orleans and Haiti that investigate the influence of Caribbean culture in Gottschalk’s music. Hartt has invited Ethiopian pianist Girma Yifrashewa to record the work of Gottschalk as the score in relation to the installation, and there will be a program of live music throughout its duration. David Hartt is available for interviews.
