Submitted by the Event Organizer
Inspired by the holiday of Sukkot, a Jewish holiday celebrating the harvest, The Contemporary Jewish Museum has built its own sukkah (meaning “booth” or “hut”) for gathering and community building in its Koret Taube Grand Lobby. Six local artists will each inhabit the Sukkah Studio as an open studio for one day between October 14-20, providing an inviting space for the artists to share their practice with visitors and work with interested people to make something together.
On Monday, October 14 from 11 am to 3 pm, artist Amy Oates will demonstrate her process of creating cut paper installations. Visitors are invited to collaborate with her on the creation of a temporary paper mural composed of silhouettes.
Amy Oates’ art practice explores the “crowd” as a metaphor for the city, representative of ephemeral moments between individuals, layered one upon the next. She creates cut paper installations to convey the movement and energy in urban spaces, varying between distinguishable figures and abstractions made of congested layers of figures.
