Upcoming  //  2015  Dorothy Saxe Invitational  //  The Contemporary Jewish Museum

April 9 - May 17, 2015

Initiated thirty years ago, the Dorothy Saxe Invitational features specially commissioned works that respond to Jewish ritual objects. The 2015 exhibition considers tzedakah — The Jewish tradition of doing good to ensure others’ needs are met, often in the form of charity.

For the exhibition I have created a new work, in an ongoing series, where I cast brass mounts used to support precious objects, out of flexible rubber. I was interested in how these object mounts could act as an allegory to giving through my musings on the Jewish tradition of tzedakah––what kind of giving is truly supportive? And what kinds appear to be the same (holds the same shape) but in actuality provide no long lasting support?

Check back for more details as they are released, on the CJM’s website .
