When curator Hans Ulrich Obrist was 23, he organized an exhibition of contemporary art in his kitchen. A few years later, he teamed up with artist Christian Boltanksi to bring together works by 12 artists that explored concepts of value and participation in the arts in an exhibition called Take Me (I’m Yours) at the Serpentine Gallery in London. All works in the exhibition would be available for visitors to take home, so they could in effect curate an exhibition in their own kitchens.
Today we launched our first crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter which will contribute, in part, towards the production of more than 400,000 works of art that visitors to the Jewish Museum can interact with and take away for the entire run of our fall exhibition Take Me (I’m Yours), on view September 16, 2016 – February 5, 2017.
The Jewish Museum’s internship program was established more than 20 years ago, according to Toni Skiba, Senior Manager of Human Resources. The program offers hands-on experience that gives undergraduates, graduate students, and beginning professionals the opportunity to understand the day-to-day operations of one of New York City’s leading museums of art and culture.
