Young Suh and Elisabeth Higgins O’Connor in Jewish Folktales Retold
September 28, 2017 – January 28, 2018

Young Suh and Elisabeth Higgins O’Connor (MFA 2005) are two of sixteen contemporary artists commissioned to produce work for the Contemporary Jewish Museum’s exhibition ”Jewish Folktales Retold: Artist as Maggid.” 

In “Jewish Folktales Retold: Artist as Maggid” these sixteen contemporary artists respond to a selection of tales from Jewish folklore. Acting as modern maggids—storytellers, transmitters of knowledge, secrets revealers—they explore the many facets of these stories’ characters, themes, and metaphors. Artists include: Michael Arcega, Julia Goodman, Dina Goldstein, Andy Diaz Hope and Laurel Roth Hope, Vera Iliatova, David Kasprzak, Mads Lynnerup, Elisabeth Higgins O’Connor, Mike Rothfeld, Tracey Snelling, Chris Sollars, M. Louise Stanley, Inez Storer, and Young Suh and Katie Peterson.
