Scheuer Auditorium

Visual artist, poet, and performer Douglas Ridloff brings his monthly ASL SLAM to the Jewish Museum. An exploration of portraiture, expressions of self, and experimental forms of sign language, audience members will investigate how we perceive ourselves and others while breaking free from the daily restraints of sign language. Through the use of images and literary prompts, Ridloff celebrates the vernacular tradition of American Sign Language and engages the audience to create collaborative poetry and stories. To learn more about ASL SLAM, watch this video.
