Untold Stories of the 90s: Museum Shows
There are many stories that have never been shared about life in America in the 90s. These stories were either shared among small families behind closed doors or creatively expressed through art. The Whitney, Tate Modern, Jewish Museum and the New Museum have opened their doors to the public to view these exceptional and historic artistic works from renowned painters and artists in America.
A Post Colonial Kinderhood Revisited
Now showing at the Jewish Museum in the Big Apple is the beautiful setup of a traditional American bedroom. The artist, Elaine Reichek seeks to recreate the typical post colonial Jewish loft which did not look at the least Jewish. Immersing into the American culture, Reichek explained that Jewish parents sought to imitate the American design as a way to assimilate young ones into this new cultural experience.
In addition to this artistic set up, the Sampler which is embroidery on linen will be displayed. This is also part of the production, A Post Colonial Kinderhood. The Museum will also add the negative and positive feedback in citations so that patrons can get a deeper understanding as to what these works mean to Jewish people and other art-lovers at large. Having acquired the pieces 20 years ago, this is the second showing of these works.
The Whitney Museum of American Art will also have its fair share of historical display as it showcases the vivid “Bed Pan” by Hugh Steers which is actually a gift for Wheelock Whitney II to remember the artist and the Museum of Modern Art will display Ellen Gallagher’s famous, Skin Natural piece.
