ART BASEL × JEWISH MUSEUM

A WINNING TRIFECTA

FOR ART BASEL SEASON AT

THE JEWISH MUSEUM OF FLORIDA-FIU

Alexander Calder, Environment and Evolution, 1973

The Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU delivers a winning trifecta with three original exhibitions for Art Basel season: a show especially curated for art lovers who are yearning to see works by some of the world’s most acclaimed modern masters, the fashion world’s electrifying new star, and a heartwarming remembrance of a beloved painter that brings to life South Florida’s artistic history.

Marc Chagall … Lee Krasner … Roy Lichtenstein … Alexander Calder … and Peter Max! The Art of the Lithograph (on view through March 3), features world- renowned modern masters. Daniel Chimowitz: Walking Canvases (through February 3), is the first- ever museum show by the fashion designer/graffiti artist. Edna Glaubman: Retrospective (through December), is a tribute to the late artist, one of Florida’s most revered painters.

The works in The Art of the Lithograph are on loan from some of America’s leading private and public collections, including: The Metropolitan Art Museum and The New York Historical Society, the Collection of Lori Gold and Alan Hall of Miami Beach, and Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion.

Thirty gorgeous prints explore the history of the lithography process, taking the visitor from lithography stones to off-set and computer-to-plate printing. The Art of the Lithograph features printmaking works by Alexander Calder, Marc Chagall, Jim Dine, Don Eddy, R.B. Kitaj, Lee Krasner, Roy Lichtenstein, Peter Max and Camille Pissarro, among others.

These striking works will be exhibited alongside actual litho stones, and materials that showcase the step-by-step process of lithography making.

Daniel Chimowitz Headlines This Triple-Threat

Headlining Art Basel Season at the Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU is Daniel Chimowitz: Walking Canvases (through February 3). This world premiere marks the first-ever museum show by the celebrated fashion designer and international graffiti artist. Known for creating walking canvases of painted images on hand-sewn and upcycled clothing, Chimowitz combines art with the energy of street art and fashion.

For this new exhibition, Chimowitz has created all new works, never before seen, along with site-specific murals and installations. The artist will make a special appearance to greet the public at the museum on December 9 at 10:00 a.m. for the museum’s annual Sunday brunch during the week of Art Basel Miami Beach. “I design to empower men and women to be warriors in their own right,” said Daniel Chimowitz. “All fashion is about confidence. The more confident you are, the more willing you are to stand out and be original,” adds Chimowitz.

Walking Canvases features seven murals by Chimowitz, 32 new fashion ensembles, two paintings by Chimowitz, two murals by Miami graffiti artist Freddy Aquino, and a selfie-booth by Miami artist Evo Love.

In Chimowitz’s textiles, colors are combined with the punk DIY fashion of London, studs from Spain, and the influences of his two mothers: one mother had Polish/Jewish heritage, and his other mom was Tlinglit (indigenous peoples of the Pacific Northwest).

There are even outfits that look different in photos when photographed using a flash: made from reflective material inspired by emergency first-responders. His fashions have been shown on the runways in Paris, London, Beijing, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Miami, and he has worked with designer Patricia Field.

As a graffiti artist since he was a teenager, the “street style” is clearly evident in his work. Chimowitz was born in London in 1976 and raised in San Francisco by his two mothers, Sylvia and Rachel.

He grew up among the LGBT community, a child of San Francisco’s Castro District where he learned to be who you truly are, and not to be afraid to express oneself. Chimowitz recently returned from Poland where he spent time researching the history of his last name, from the Jewish half of his heritage. The artist learned that what was originally Chaimowitz has become Chimowitz over time, and he feels very connected to his Jewish roots and is proud to have his first-ever exhibition at a Jewish museum.

Also on view during Art Basel Season is the new exhibition Edna Glaubman: Retrospective (through December).

This new museum retrospective includes 29 works by the late artist (1919-1986), including many works never shown before to the public. She was revered and beloved in Florida as one of the community’s favorite artists for portraits and landscapes.

Her subjects varied widely and included intimate family moments and social gatherings that are now part of the fabric of Jewish history in South Florida’s culture.

“The timeless quality of Edna Glaubman’s art, and her ideas and creative awakenings are as fresh and exciting today as they were when she created them,” said Susan Gladstone, the Executive Director of the Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU.

“Our three exhibitions this year for Art Basel season are all original, new shows created by the Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU,” adds Susan Gladstone.

“They represent the past, present and future of our Jewish Museum. These are works of art that all of our audiences are yearning for and thrilled to see, including the thousands of visitors from all over the world who are in town for Art Basel and our locals from Miami Beach and South Florida.”
