Thu.–Sun., 11 a.m.–5 p.m.

736 Mission St.

On view through Feb. 13 is “Experience Leonard Cohen,” a series of four solo exhibitions that present immersive and intimate artworks by contemporary artists Candice Breitz and Marshall Trammell, all inspired by the life and work of Leonard Cohen (1934–2016), the influential musician, man of letters, and global icon from Montréal; “Golem: A Call to Action,” a digital exhibition in three parts that draws on Jewish allegory, folklore, and spiritual practice to confront societal and ecological disasters. The legend of the golem originates as far back as the Middle Ages, when Jewish mystics imagined the creation of a clay humanoid as a meditative technique for becoming closer to God. By the 19th century, popular Yiddish folktales characterized the golem as a helper, companion, or rescuer of an imperiled Jewish community; and more.
