Come to the Jewish Museum every Thursday in December, January, and February to toast the exhibitions Edith Halpert and the Rise of American Art and Rachel Feinstein: Maiden, Mother, Crone. Enjoy signature cocktails in the Museum’s lobby inspired by the exhibitions on view, crafted and served by Russ & Daughters at the Jewish Museum.
For Thursdays in December, the signature cocktail is Russ & Daughters’ Beet & Lemon Shrub and gin. The cocktail is the perfect selection because of the legendary gallerist Edith Halpert’s love of gin and borscht. The exhibition, featuring works by artists Halpert championed including Stuart Davis, Jacob Lawrence, and Georgia O’Keeffe is located in the second-floor galleries.
Edith Halpert Thursdays, December 5, 12, 19, and 26
Rachel Feinstein Thursdays, January 2, 9, 16, 23, and 30, and February 6, 13, 20, and 27
WHERE: The Jewish Museum, 1109 Fifth Avenue at 92nd Street, New York City
Rachel Feinstein: Maiden, Mother, Crone is the first survey of the New York-based artist in the United States. The exhibition includes three decades of Feinstein’s work in sculpture, painting, and video, as well as a panoramic wallpaper, a new commission, and the artist’s maquettes for sculpture. Taken together, the works emphasize the artist’s fascination with dualities: her investigations of masculinity and femininity or good and evil echo her formal explorations of balance and precariousness or positive and negative space. Feinstein’s art follows myriad lines of inquiry, but the idea of the feminine is central. She has made a sustained examination of the many ways this concept is manifested culturally. Female protagonists and figures proliferate in her work and bind it together across diverse media. The exhibition is on view through March 22, 2020.
