New York, NY, December 20, 2023—The Jewish Museum is open on Monday, December 25 from 11 am to 4 pm. Highlights this year include the special exhibitions Marta Minujín: Arte! Arte! Arte! and Mood of the moment: Gaby Aghion and the house of Chloé; new installations on the Museum's third floor; and Nefesh Mountain in concert. 

Marta Minujín (born in 1943) is one of Argentina’s most visible and prolific artists, a creator of work that is as singular as it is colorful and exuberant. From the outset of her career, Minujín distinguished herself as a unique voice with her bold mattress constructions, audacious performances, and interactive multimedia pieces. Marta Minujín: Arte! Arte! Arte! is the first survey exhibition in the United States of this defining force of Latin American art, showcasing her contribution to major developments in postwar art, intersecting at various moments with the feminist art movement, land art, happenings, Pop, and psychedelia, always with her own spin.

Mood of the moment: Gaby Aghion and the house of Chloé is the first museum exhibition honoring the visionary Jewish entrepreneur Gaby Aghion (1921-2014) and her legacy as the founder of the French fashion house Chloé. Casting a new light on the label’s 70-year history, this exhibition highlights Aghion’s vision of effortless, luxurious fashion, and the work of iconic designers who began their careers with the brand, including Karl Lagerfeld, Stella McCartney, and Phoebe Philo. Aghion was a leader whose work altered the course of the global fashion industry in liberating women's bodies from the restrictive attitudes and styles of the time, as well as pioneering the emergence of luxury ready-to-wear. 

On view on the Museum’s third floor are the recently opened installations RBG Collars: Photographs by Elinor Carucci, featuring two dozen photographs of former US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s collars and necklaces, and Zoya Cherkassky’s new body of work, 7 October 2023, which takes as its point of departure the harrowing events of that day in Israel, using a graphic visual style to depict the terror attacks at the Nova Music Festival and the seizure of hostages.

In an all-ages concert, enjoy the toe-tapping sounds of Nefesh Mountain, led by singer Doni Zasloff and her multi-instrumentalist husband Eric Lindberg. Dance to a vibrant blend of Bluegrass, Celtic, and Appalachian tunes with a Jewish soul, as the band performs original melodies from their notable family release Songs from the Mountain and heralded album Beneath the Open Sky along with other favorites from their beloved songbook. Nefesh Mountain will play two sets, at 11:30 am and 2 pm.
