Sabbath: The 2017 Dorothy Saxe Invitational | CJM
The Contemporary Jewish Museum welcomed participating artists from around the United States to interpret the Sabbath - the day of rest - from their own unique perspective and to engage with its contemporary relevance. A pillar of many religions and a staple of the modern workweek, the ideas in the Sabbath are integral to how time is viewed. Each work is three-dimensional, with artists exploring the theme through a wide range of materials such as ceramic, wood, and glass. The works of art are displayed both on shelves and under vitrines on pedestals, filling the gallery with colorful and surprising forms.
The exhibition runs through Feb. 25.
