Jason Lazarus: Live Archive
Sponsor The Contemporary Jewish Museum
Type of Event Arts & Culture
Description The Contemporary Jewish Museum (The CJM) presents Jason Lazarus: Live Archive, the first West Coast museum exhibition of rising star and Jewish artist Jason Lazarus (American, b. 1975). The Chicago-based artist is known for using both traditional photography and found or solicited images and texts to create installations that explore private and public realms of experience, and the ways they often overlap. Equal parts art maker, collector, archivist, and organizer, Lazarus actively engages the public in the creation and consideration of his work. The exhibition includes a site-specific installation of Lazarus’ ongoing archive of over 3,000 donated photographs deemed “too hard to keep”; an installation of re-created signs from the Occupy Movement; a piece featuring a student of classical piano learning to play Frédéric Chopin’s Nocturne in F Minor, op. 55, no. 1 live in the gallery; and several recent photographs and mixed media pieces.
