THE CONTEMPORARY JEWISH MUSEUM PRESENTS

Maira Kalman: Various Illuminations (of a Crazy World)

July 1 – October 26, 2010

This summer, the Contemporary Jewish Museum presents Maira Kalman: Various Illuminations (of a Crazy World), the first major museum survey of award-winning illustrator, author and designer Maira Kalman’s work.

Perhaps best known for her witty covers and drawings for The New Yorker, Kalman has also written and illustrated over a dozen books for children and adults such as Oooh-La-La (Max in Love), authored two celebrated illustrated blogs for The New York Times, and has collaborated with the likes of fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi and choreographer Mark Morris. Kalman’s art appears everywhere in the foreground of today’s visual culture illuminating contemporary life with joy and humor, curlicues and question marks.

The exhibition features a selection of 100 original works on paper that span thirty years of illustration for publication as well as less widely seen works in photography, embroidery, textiles and performance. As a creative context for the survey, Kalman has created a special installation furnished with chairs, ladders and “many tables of many things” –balls of string, things that have fallen out of books, moss, lists, bobby pins. Expressive of her habits as a collector of odds and ends, traveler, reader and walker, the installation invites viewers to observe her way of structuring the world in and outside of the studio.
