Contraption: Rediscovering California Jewish Artists
An illustrated presentation by docent Lisa Rosenberg on a current exhibit at the Contemporary Jewish Museum
Explore the contribution of Jewish artists to shaping California’s artistic reputation.
Contraption: Rediscovering California Jewish Artists is a group show that presents the work of sixteen California-identified artists of Jewish descent—both historical and living—whose work refers to the machine either literally or metaphorically.
Some of the artists are rarely seen now.
Among the living artists, there will be large-scale mechanical installations by Bernie Lubell and Sheri Simons, as well as ceramics, drawings, sculpture and paintings by Ned Kahn, Bella Feldman, Howard Fried, and Annabeth Rosen. Many other artists are also represented.
This original exhibition was co-curated by Chief Curator Renny Pritikin and Mark Dean Johnson, Professor of Art at SFSU.
