The Take Me (I’m Yours) group exhibition is on at New York’s The Jewish Museum, opening September 16 and running to February 5.
The show takes its name and idea from the 1995 exhibition organised by Serpentine Galleries artistic director Hans Ulrich Obrist and artist Christian Boltanski, building on the anarchist idea of ‘property is theft’ and post-60s dematerialisation of the art object to exhibit work by 12 artists that visitors could not only touch but take home.
Features over 40 artists from across generations, including Ian Cheng, Heman Chong, Andrea Fraser, Jonas Mekas, Rachel Rose, and Amalia Ulman, this latest iteration applies the same ethos where visitors are encouraged to engage with and take ownership of the artworks, curating their own collections and directly impacting the exhibition landscape.
Other artists taking part include Gilbert & George, Yngve Holen, Yoko Ono and Tino Sehgal, while James Lee Byars‘ ‘Be Quiet’ (1980) will be running every Saturday afternoon, along with a performance by Sondra Perry, the date and time to be announced.
