And a Jewlicious/Heeb Magazine Giveaway!
From September 13, 2009 to February 07, 2010, the Jewish Museum is putting on an exhibit titled Reinventing Ritual: Contemporary Art and Design for Jewish Life. The exhibition is described as a multi-disciplinary survey of “the explosion of new Jewish rituals, art, and objects that has occurred since the mid-1990s. This period is defined by the urge to discover beauty and meaning in first premises–the roots and ruptures–when ritual could be radical. This attitude of innovation is shared by a wide range of artists inclusive of generation, nationality, and religion. Contemporary artists and designers focus on Judaism as a lived experience by transforming the physical acts of ritual into new forms.”
Sounds interesting? It sure is! The list of participating artists is impressive (including Karim Rashid a personal fave) and the concept is intriguing.
