Masterpieces & Curiosities: Memphis Does Hanukkah @ Jewish Museum

This edition of the Masterpieces & Curiosities series focuses on designer and artist Peter Shire’s Menorah #7 (1986), and presents an opportunity to visually sketch the connection between the Los Angeles native’s history to the history and resonance of Memphis design. Elaborating these two stories opens up a larger and multilayered conversation about the relationships and dissonances between art and design, tradition and innovation, ceremony and interpretation, and the importance of iconoclasm.
