Hanukkah-Related Works on View at the Jewish Museum 11/19
by BWW News Desk - Nov 19, 2010

Three major sculptural installations related to Hanukkah will be on view in the contemporary gallery of Culture and Continuity: The Jewish Journey, The Jewish Museum's permanent exhibition, from November 19, 2010 to January 30, 2011. Alice Aycock's Greased Lightning (1984) is a motorized kinetic sculpture featuring an oversized moving dreidel, the small, inscribed top that children play with during the holiday. Miracle (2004) by Lynn Godley is a playful and monumental Hanukkah lamp that uses multiple lights to evoke the cumulative effect of progressively lighting the candles over eight nights. Matthew McCaslin's Bring the Light (2000) fashions metal electrical conduit, light switches and porcelain light fixtures into an innovative and decidedly nontraditional Hanukkah lamp. In addition, a selection from Eleanor Antin's video Vilna Nights (1993-97), A Photograph by Mike Mandel entitled Robot Lights the Chanukah Candles (1985), and works on paper by Larry Rivers (1982) and Marc Alan Jacobs (1994) will be included.

Review - Where's Charley?: The Guy's Only Doing It For Some Doll
by Ben Peltz - Mar 19, 2011
