The Jewish Museum and Bang on a Can Present
Iva Bittová  
Thursday, February 22, 2018 at 7:30pm
Scheuer Auditorium at the Jewish Museum

Bang on a Can and the Jewish Museum’s 2017-18 concert season, which focuses on pioneering female artists, continues on Thursday, February 22, 2018 at 7:30pm with a performance by Iva Bittová. Bittová is known foremost as a violinist-vocalist whose distinct music blends styles from many global music cultures – eastern European folk, western classical, Indian, Middle Eastern, and American rock ‘n roll. Her solo performance at the Jewish Museum will reflect the central themes of cultural exchange and influence present in the exhibition Veiled Meanings: Fashioning Jewish Dress, from the Collection of the Israel Museum, Jerusalem. This acoustic program will feature a mix of Bittová’s earlier original compositions and new works. Some of them are contemporary, while others are based on traditional melodies from Moravia, Slovakia, and Romania, but all are flowing with vocal and violin improvisations. On her role as a pioneering female artist, Bittová says, “The most important part of my journey as an artist is to be true to my own original independent style, which makes me very free and happy! Music is my healing meditation and source of creativity to send lot of important messages to the universe.”
Veiled Meanings: Fashioning Jewish Dress, from the Collection of the Israel Museum, Jerusalem is the first comprehensive U.S. exhibition drawn from The Israel Museum’s world-renowned collection of Jewish costumes and showcases over 100 articles of clothing from the eighteenth to twentieth centuries. The extraordinary range of textile designs and clothing illuminates the story of how diverse global cultures have thrived, interacted, and inspired each other for centuries. This exhibition invites viewers to consider the language of clothing in all its complexity. Though this language can disclose information about gender, age, background, and custom, some important meanings remain vague and fluid. Clothing may accentuate or conceal; it may be transitory, but it may also be ageless and universal. These garments provide a unique testimony to bygone communities, to forms of dress and craft that no longer exist, and to a sense of beauty that still has the power to enthrall. 
Tickets for the February 22 program are $18 general public; $15 students and senior citizens; and $12 for Jewish Museum members and Bang on a Can list members, and include exhibition admission prior to the performance. Further program and ticket information is available by calling 212.423.3337 or at TheJewishMuseum.org/calendar. The Jewish Museum is located at Fifth Avenue and 92nd Street, NYC.
