Join the Museum at Eldridge Street for a talk and wine reception celebrating "the inside," an installation by artist Tamara Gayer at toomer labzda gallery just a short walk from the Museum. Gayer was inspired by the architecture and design of the Eldridge Street Synagogue, creating a vividly colored, kaleidoscopic re- interpretation of our landmark building.
Gayer manipulates, inverts and expands forms and colors from our historic site creating a work that is both forward looking and historically grounded, and that experiments with perceptions of interior and exterior space. Meet at the Eldridge Street Synagogue for a short talk with Gayer and Museum deputy director Amy Stein- Milford.
They'll discuss the new work and the Museum's own magnificent stained-glass windows. Visitors are then invited to walk a short distance to toomer labzda to see Gayer's installation. tuesday, august 7th at 6.30pm / this event is free and open to the public / light refreshments will be served at each venue.
