New York: Between Art and Life
Martha Edelheit and Rebecca Shaykin in Conversation
In conjunction with the current New York: 1962–1964 exhibition, the Jewish Museum will present an in-person conversation between artist Martha Edelheit and Associate Curator Rebecca Shaykin.
Edelheit (b. 1931 in New York City, now based in Sweden) is a groundbreaking feminist artist whose decades-long career has resulted in a deeply probing investigation into the subject of the female body, from early works exploring the expressive power of tattoos to erotic watercolors and vivid depictions of women at various stages of their lives. Her 1962 work, “Tattooed Lady” — created just blocks from the Jewish Museum — is included in New York: 1962–1964 and will serve as the jumping point for a discussion that will touch on the artist’s life, work, and unique vision.
This in-person event will take place on Thursday, November 17, from 6:30–7:30pm (EST) at the Jewish Museum, located at Fifth Avenue and 92nd Street in New York City.
