Take Me I’m Yours

The Jewish Museum raised money on Kickstarter for an installation called Take Me I’m Yours.   42 Artists participated in the show creating over 400,000+ artworks for people to take with them keeping up with the concept art for all.

presidentsWe will receive one of these posters when the show closes.  The black piece at the end of the poster did say Hillary Clinton but they had to block it out because non-profit organizations (such as the Jewish Museum) can not show any political affiliations or they would be in danger of losing their 5013C status.  This is also a piece by Jonathan Horowitz.

candiesThe show was a nod to the artist Feliz Gonzalez-Torres whose piece which is an endless supply of tiny red, silver and blue candies that can be installed however one wants (this piece is on loan from the Met).

    Great show – thank you for supporting it!!! I believe that the artist collective’s name is Claire Fontaine (not fenton): )

  2. panterosa,

    We saw the show last weekend, even though our primary destination was my fave Roberto Burle Marx. Did you see that as well? And the superb Sargent portrait?We enjoyed Take Me I’m Yours, including my teen. It raised interesting consumer issues for her age group. The idea of free stuff, which is cool, and from an art show is sort of irresistible. Except that is part of the main complaint of the show highlighting materialism and throw away culture. But it raised a good discussion.The air from Yoko was the perfect counterpoint.
