Purim Ball: Supporting the Jewish Museum is a... Read More

On February 20, 2019, the Jewish Museum celebrated its 33rd Annual Purim Ball honoring Robert and Tracey Pruzan and The Barnett and Annalee Newman Foundation

Purim, the Jewish holiday that commemorates the deliverance of Persian Jewry from the annihilation planned by the king’s chief minister Haman in the 5th century BCE, begins on March 20, 2019 at sundown. As the holiday approaches, we take a look back at the Jewish Museum’s annual Purim Ball celebration through the inspiring speeches of this year’s honorees — Robert and Tracey Pruzan and The Barnett and Annalee Newman Foundation. Together with more than 1,000 guests at the Park Avenue Armory in New York, the Jewish Museum’s annual fundraising gala raised a record $3 million in support of the Museum’s innovative exhibitions and vibrant programming.

Stephen Scherr introduced the night’s first honorees, Robert and Tracey Pruzan, who were recognized for their longtime service to the Jewish Museum as well as their outstanding and unflagging commitment to philanthropy, the arts, and celebrating Jewish culture:

Very often you are asked to introduce an honoree at an event such as this who is well known — but largely a stranger to the organization and to the people involved. That is noticeably not the case tonight.
I know that I speak for the Pleplers and the Effrons to say that we are all privileged to introduce Tracey and Robert Pruzan as tonight’s honorees. They are close friends to us all and we are thrilled to honor the Pruzans and, in the process, to raise funds for the Jewish Museum.
On a personal level, Susan and I have been close friends of Tracey and Robert for more than 20 years. We were brought together as our sons were both students at the 92nd Street Y Nursery School, another important Jewish institution in New York. Our friendship has grown from the early days of staring at our two young sons, to a relationship that spans siblings, children, and reaches across into Robert’s and my professional roles.
You all know Robert as a co-founder of Centerview Partners. He has built an exemplary business and is a trusted advisor to a broad and impressive list of corporate clients. Equally impressive, Tracey has been an interior designer at Cullman & Kravis for more than 20 years — she writes and lectures on design, and has co-written three books on the subject.
Tonight’s honor is bestowed on the Pruzans not as a simple gesture for their financial generosity — although they have been generous. Instead, we are honoring the dedication of Tracey and Robert to a New York institution that is becoming more important by the day. The Jewish Museum sits on Museum Mile as an institution open to all religions and faiths, but at its core, it is committed to sustaining a vibrant cultural embrace of art that connects the Jewish people and their culture to the world.
As Chairman of the Board of the Museum for 7 years, Robert drew me to the board as he energetically seeks to secure the future of the Museum, both financially and in terms of its continued stewardship. The Jewish Museum is ever more relevant at a time when the Jewish people, Jewish culture, and the standing of Jews are being challenged.

Robert Pruzan, Chairman of the Jewish Museum’s Board of Trustees:

Good evening. What an incredible night. Looking out at our family, our friends, and all of you who share our commitment to this singular New York institution, Tracey and I are grateful and humbled by your support.
First, I want to thank our dinner chairs: Cheryl and Blair, Lisa and Richard, and Susan and Stephen, for making tonight such a success. We’ve raised $3 million, a record for this event, and it would not have been possible without their energy and leadership and of course the support of all of you.
We also want to congratulate our co-honorees, the Barnett and Annalee Newman Foundation, and thank them for their extraordinary generosity to the Museum. The Foundation’s choice to direct their historic donation to the Museum is a tribute to our institution. We are proud to welcome the collection of an artist, intellectual, and activist whose work embodies so many of the values and ethos of our Jewish community.

Tracey Pruzan continued:

Robert and I believe that supporting the Museum is truly a family affair. As some of you may know, art has played a part in our relationship from the very beginning. We met at Wesleyan, where I was an art major and Robert loved taking Art History classes presumably to meet women — and I guess it worked because here we are today! Together, we’ve made supporting art and education a priority.
We first became involved with the Museum when I attended the annual spring luncheon, and of course I’ve met so many of you there. Over the years, our dedication grew as we came to love this welcoming place. Now, we embrace the Museum as a place to explore, a place to celebrate special occasions and a place to learn about art through the lens of Judaism.
According to a recent Pew study, 62% of Jewish Americans say that being Jewish is mainly a matter of ancestry and culture rather than a matter of religious observance. For us, and for so many of you, the Museum is more than an art-filled mansion on Fifth Avenue. It’s the place where we re-affirm our connection to our community and to our Jewish identity.
Purim commemorates the triumph of the Jews over a violent enemy. Tonight, let’s take the time to remember and to mourn the tragic massacre in Pittsburgh last fall, and especially to embrace our need to come together as a family, and as a community — a need which has never been stronger.

Robert Pruzan:

Believe it or not, it’s been nearly 20 years since I was introduced to the board of the Jewish Museum. Along with Josh Nash, I was once considered the “NICE young man” on the board, and what’s NICE is that they still call me a young man today … though for the record, the Museum didn’t make my hair grey (that’s all of you at table 2).
I owe a debt of gratitude to my entire board. Both the long-serving members and Life Trustees — whose vision created a lasting foundation that supports our work. And the newer Trustees — who are bringing a fresh perspective as we adapt to the changing role of museums in modern society and specifically, the role of the Jewish Museum.
Today, we are a highly respected component of New York’s cultural landscape. Our scholarship, innovative exhibitions, and dedicated stewardship are appealing to an increasingly younger and diverse global audience.
Together under the visionary leadership of Claudia Gould and her creative, hard-working staff, we make the Museum relevant to every visitor, young or old, Jewish or not.
As you all know, we are living in challenging times — a time of angry polarization and rising antisemitism. But also a time where diversity and inclusion are ascendant.
And this is why the Jewish Museum plays such a critical role — as a place where both tradition and change can co-exist. Rooted in a long history of productive, intercultural dialogue, the Museum is an authority on how to sustain heritage, encourage new paths to Jewish awareness and inclusion, and promote Jewish culture and identity in a complicated and dynamic global context.
We visit the Museum to nourish our hearts, to stimulate our minds, and to enrich our souls. Our programs offer visual delights, intellectual challenges and perhaps most important of all, an opportunity to connect to one’s Jewish identity. Whether you are a practicing Jew, one who only identifies culturally , or just someone interested in exploring and learning about Jewish art and culture, I urge you to join us and support this institution.
It is critical, now more than ever before, that the Jewish Museum has the resources and capabilities to serve its mission — to make sure that our stories are told — so that, from generation to generation, we can educate and enlighten all of our visitors about the role we Jews have played, and continue to play, in shaping art and culture throughout the world.
We thank you again for supporting the Jewish Museum, and hope you will continue to do so, as we work together toward a more meaningful, connected, and civil world.

Kelly Taxter, the Jewish Museum’s Barnett and Annalee Newman Curator of Contemporary Art, next introduced The Barnett and Annalee Newman Foundation, recognized for its support of the Jewish Museum’s contemporary art programming and of artists whose work exemplifies the Newmans’ spirit of inquiry and independence.

Hello, I’m Kelly Taxter, the Jewish Museum’s Barnett and Annalee Newman Curator of Contemporary Art.
Very proudly, I am the Museum’s first curator dedicated to contemporary art.
I have the Barnett and Annalee Newman Foundation to thank for this honor — as well as for the remarkable artworks they have donated to our collection, spanning generations of artists beginning with works made as early as 1936 and up to the present day.
I too, thank Frank Stella, John Silberman, Donn Zaretzky, and Heidi Colsman-Freyberger for making all of this possible.
Since our earliest days, beginning with the first solo museum exhibition of Robert Rauschenberg in 1963, the first retrospective of Jasper Johns in 1964 and the iconic, first survey of Minimal Art, Primary Structures in 1966, the Jewish Museum has been a pioneering and steadfast supporter of contemporary art, artists, and now curators.
The Barnett and Annalee Newman Foundation recognizes this legacy and extends it with their generous gift.
Thank you to them and to everyone here tonight for your support.
It is now my privilege to introduce Heidi Colsman-Freyberger, Executive Director of the Newman Foundation.
Heidi has been working closely with me on the inaugural exhibition drawn from the Barnett and Annalee Newman Foundation Collection, which opens this Spring, and that I have appropriately titled, “The Gift.” Without her willingness to share her encyclopedic knowledge about the Newmans and their circle of friends, the exhibition would not be possible.
Photograph taken at the 1966 Jewish Museum Purim Ball shows two guests in conversation: benefactor Vera List and Barnett Newman. Fifty-three years later Barney is back, himself a benefactor.

Heidi Colsman-Freyberger, Executive Director of The Barnett Newman Foundation, accepted the honor.

Good evening — and thank you, Kelly, for your gracious introduction.
It is fitting that Kelly Taxter’s curatorial title honors both Barnett and Annalee Newman: theirs was an extraordinary partnership.
They were married in 1936. Annalee was the wife of an artist for 34 years and his widow for another 30 years. Her obituary in the New York Times on May 13th, 2000, began (and I quote Roberta Smith): “‘Artists’s wife’ is not a category widely used by art historians, but Mrs. Newman was among the great ones of 20th-century art, bringing an unusual combination of fierce loyalty and independence to her calling.”
The Newmans had no children and Mrs. Newman used to say that the paintings were their children and that it was her job to marry them off well. And that she did, placing them in important collections on several continents. With the painting given to the Jewish Museum, her mission is complete.
Out of that mission grows another, and Kelly will be instrumental in it.
She has reminded us of the museum’s focus on new art in the 1960s: 55 years ago, almost to the day, Jasper Johns’ first museum retrospective had just opened at the Jewish Museum; the truly seminal survey “Primary Structures” would follow in 1966.
Counting scholars like Alan Solomon, Sam Hunter, and Kynaston McShine among its curators, this Museum was a celebrated exhibition venue for current art.
During that same decade, the last of his life, Barnett Newman was included three times in group shows at the Jewish Museum:
1963: Recent American Synagogue Architecture (curated by Richard Meier)
1964: Black and White (curated by Ben Heller)
1968: A survey of “Recent Prints” included his lithography suite titled 18 Cantos
After Newman’s death in 1970, Robert Hughes wrote:
“It takes an effort to remember that Newman was not always famous. He spent decades in the cold, both critically and financially.”
Also because of their experience, Barney (as everybody called him) and Annalee Newman would be proud that their legacy is connected with the support of contemporary artists and the care of their work at the Jewish Museum.
Our best wishes for success go to the museum and Kelly Taxter. Thank you.

Every Woman Artist Exhibited at the Jewish Museum, 1947–2019 Read More

For International Women’s Day, we updated our master list of every woman artist exhibited at the Jewish Museum since 1947.

“If there are no great, celebrated women artists, that’s because the powers that be have not been celebrating them, but not because they are not there.” — Joan Semmel

Today is International Women’s Day, celebrated around the world as a day to recognize the social, economic, cultural, and artistic achievement of women. In 2010, the Jewish Museum presented Shifting the Gaze: Painting and Feminism, an exhibition exploring the origins and impact of feminism on contemporary painting from the 1960s to early 2000s, featuring key figures in feminist art such as Eva Hesse, Joan Semmel, Deborah Kass, and Miriam Schapiro, whose work generated new ideas and challenged old ones. Shifting the Gaze offered a counterpoint to an art world dominated by men to encompass women’s history, experience, and material culture.

In conjunction with the exhibition, the Jewish Museum published a comprehensive record of all women artists included in exhibitions at the Museum since 1947, when the Museum moved to its current location inside the Warburg Mansion on 1109 Fifth Avenue. The project considered the pervasive underrepresentation of women artists in American museums during the twentieth century and documents the Jewish Museum’s history of integrating work by women into its collections and exhibitions.

On the occasion of International Women’s Day, we revisited the original list of 550 women artists and expanded it into the year 2019 — now including 701.

Celebrate International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month by sharing your 5 favorite artists with #5WomenArtists on social media.
