Designing Home: Jews and Midcentury Modernism
Sponsor The Contemporary Jewish Museum
Type of Event Arts & Culture
Description The Contemporary Jewish Museum (The CJM) presents Designing Home: Jews and Midcentury Modernism, the first major exhibition to explore the role of Jewish architects, designers, and patrons in the formation of a new American domestic landscape during the middle decades of the twentieth century. Brimming with a dazzling array of vintage furnishings, textiles, wallpapers, ceramics, posters, dinnerware, photographs, and more, Designing Home will feature the work of over thirty-five creative professionals who helped spark America’s embrace of mid-century modernism and its repertoire of glass-walled houses and furnishings in vivid colors and bold patterns. Designing Home highlights the contributions of many well-known architects and designers, among them Anni Albers, Joseph Eichler, and Richard Neutra, as well as several critically overlooked ones such as Ruth Adler Schnee, Marguerite Wildenhain, and Alex Steinweiss. The exhibition also examines significant patrons, merchants, and media figures that disseminated this modern aesthetic to a broad audience. Designing Home: Jews and Midcentury Modernism is organized by The Contemporary Jewish Museum, San Francisco, with Guest Curator Donald Albrecht.
