Contemporary Jewish Museum

Russian Jewish Theater with a Side of Chagall

Last week we attended the much-anticipated opening reception for the Contemporary Jewish Museum’s latest exhibit, “Chagall and the Artists of the Russian Jewish Theater (1919-1949).” The first exhibition devoted to the artwork created for Russian Jewish Theater productions in the 1920s and 1930s, the show presents a discourse about the interplay between innovative visual artists and playwrights of the times. But the title is misleading.

Is Josh Kornbluth Good for the Jews?

Josh Kornbluth's show is drawing crowds of young Jews to the Contemporary Jewish Museum.  “Andy Warhol; Good for the Jews?” is Kornbluth’s first commissioned piece and coincides with the museum’s new exhibit -- “Warhol’s Jews: Ten Portraits Reconsidered.

Dreidels, Israeli Folk-Dancing and...Charlton Heston?

Is it something in the air? This morning, we got a heads-up about an exhibit coming to the CJM called "Jews on Vinyl"—which is about pretty much what you'd think it'd be about. Then, about five minutes later, we heard that Rob Tannenbaum (music editor of Blender) and David Fagin are coming to town with their latest revue, Good for the Jews. Coincidence?
