Meet the curator behind the Archie Rand exhibition at the Cincinnati Skirball Museum.

Exhibition curator Samantha Baskind, Professor of Art History at Cleveland State University, is the author of five books on modern Jewish art and co-editor of The Jewish Graphic Novel: Critical Approaches, the foundational volume in the field. She has published over 100 articles and reviews in academic journals, museum catalogues, edited collections, encyclopedias, and the popular press. Tonight she will talk about how in both concept and style Archie Rand’s groundbreaking series updates the Hebrew Bible’s archetypal stories about power, faith, humility, sexuality, and family dynamics for the modern day.
