The Upper East Side’s Jewish Museum is one of New York City’s greatest treasures – and not just because they offer a mean Russ and Daughters’ Bloody Mary. Housed in the former Warburg Mansion on 5th at 92nd, the institution proudly serves as a “hub for art and Jewish culture for people of all backgrounds.”
On the ’90s—heels of notable fashion exhibition, Isaac Mizrahi: An Unruly History – the first major installation devoted to the designer’s career – the museum opens an unconventional showcase turning viewers into participants. Take Me (I’m Yours) “asks you not only to get into close contact with the artworks, but to take them away and keep them for good.”
Felix Gonzalez-Torres’ “Untitled” cellophane (kosher) candies to Carsten Höller’s Pill Clock dropping capsules, the show invites individuals to interact with the art – some works meant to disappear entirely – transforming the exhibit which opened September 16th and runs through February 5th. Both innovative and engaging, Take Me (I’m Yours) explores the concept of community sharing, a particularly strong ethos of Judaism.
