NEW YORK---“Masterpieces & Curiosities: Memphis Does Hanukkah,” a new exhibition at the Jewish Museum, New York will run through February 12, 2017. This edition centers on designer and artist Peter Shire’s Menorah #7 (1986) and connects Los Angeles’ native history, to the history and resonance of Memphis design. The Museum’s Judaica objects, textiles, and artworks that resonate with Shire’s artistic approach to form and materials, will be exhibited alongside an array of objects and ephemera relating to both Shire and the Memphis movement.
