HIGHLIGHTED SHOW

Marc Chagall. Early Works from Russian Museums. At the Jewish Museum in NYC, 2001

[the book] Marc Chagall's artistic odyssey of 1907 to 1922 took him from Vitebsk, his hometown in the Russian Pale of Settlement, to the art centers of St. Petersburg and Paris, and in 1914 back to Russia, where he was forced to remain due to the outbreak of World War I and through the early years following the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution until his final departure in 1922. From his experiences over these fifteen years, Chagall developed the original visual vocabulary that became deeply embedded in his psyche.

The Museum, designed by Daniel Libekind (with influences from Schoenberg's "Moses und Aron" and an essay by Walter Benjamin, titled "One Way Street"), had its official opening in September 2001. The Jewish Museum will open with its first major exhibition on September 9th 2001. The opening will display a permanent exhibition offering visitors a journey through German-Jewish history and culture, from its earliest testimonies, through the Middle Ages and up to the present. Jewish contributions to German culture, politics, economics and science and other similar topics will be presented along with the everyday life of regular Jewish citizens, the history of persecution and the vacuum that was left behind, as well as the survival and new beginning of Jewish life in this country.

HIGHLIGHTED SHOW

Myer Myers 1723-95: Jewish Silversmith in Colonial New York - September 14, 2001-January 5, 2002, Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven, CT

[the book] Myer Myers, a Jewish silversmith in colonial America, created outstanding works for leading members of the New York elite, and the objects made in his workshop have long been regarded as among the most important American statements of the Rococo style. These works are also valuable for the information they provide about craftsmanship, patronage, colonial Judaism, and changing cultural values in pre- and post-Revolutionary America.

HIGHLIGHTED SHOW

Carved Memories: Jewish Tombstones of the Russian Pale at the Brooklyn Museum of Art.

[the book] The Book:
Photographs by David Goberman

January 14, 2000-April 30, 2000
Brooklyn Museum of Art, Brooklyn, NY
This exhibition will include seventy photographs by the Russian photographer, David Goberman, 88, from the 1930s through the 1960s. Through these photographs, the exhibition documents and explores the vanishing art of stone carvers and highlights themes of folk art and spiritual belief. The photos also provide a timeless record of Jewish tradition in Russia (Ukraine and Moldova). Following their photographic documentation, many of the tombstones were later destroyed and used as construction materials. The exhibition will include three maps showing the villages where the cemeteries were located. Intricately carved motifs include crowns of the Torah, Kohanim signs, birds, fallen fruit, a single candle, a broken tree and three small chicks, fish, deer, unicorns, bear, and lions. Those with menorahs, grapes and water jugs usually represented Levites. Peacocks represent paradise.
Barbara Head Millstein, Curator of Photography at the Brooklyn Museum of Art, is organizing the exhibition. A book has been published by Rizzoli International to accompany the exhibition. This exhibition is made possible by a generous grant from The Joseph S. and Diane H. Steinberg Charitable Trust. Additional support is provided by Frank and Katherine Martucci and by the Leo and Julia Forchheimer Foundation
