Join artist Tobi Kahn for an exclusive tour of his first solo show in New York City in ten years, Memory and Inheritance: Paintings and Ceremonial Objects at the Museum at Eldridge Street!

  • Learn about the memories, rituals, and color theory behind the paintings and ceremonial objects in the exhibition

  • Get an insider perspective from the artist on his inspiration, choice of media, and exhibit layout

  • Hear why Kahn chose to display his work in the historic Eldridge Street Synagogue

About the event:

The exhibition features 48 objects throughout the historic Eldridge Street Synagogue, including ceremonial art, which is central to his practice. Informed by American modernism, Kahn’s abstract, distinctively crafted works on Jewish ritual and tradition communicate spiritual meaning and the artist’s deep faith in a way that speaks to any audience.

Memory and Inheritance: Paintings and Ceremonial Objects by Tobi Kahn will be on view through Sunday, November 10, 2024.

Memory & Inheritance and related programs at the Museum at Eldridge Street are made possible, in part, by the City of New York Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.
