This fall, the Jewish Museum is upending museum conventions with Take Me (I'm Yours), an exhibition featuring artworks that visitors are asked to touch, participate in, and even take home.

This presentation builds upon an iconic exhibition of the same name that took place in 1995 at the Serpentine Gallery in London. Conceived by the curator Hans Ulrich Obrist and the artist Christian Boltanski, it included works by twelve artists, several of whom are participating again here. Obrist and Boltanski took inspiration from a host of histories and ideologies related to possession, from the anarchist idea that “ownership is theft” to the post-1960s dematerialization of the object in conceptual art.

On view from September 16, 2016 through February 5, 2017, Take Me (I'm Yours) will feature a group of 42 international and intergenerational artists working in a variety of media including sculpture, works on paper, installation, performance, and digital media. Many of the artists are creating new and site-specific works for the exhibition. On average, 10,000 of each work will be produced for visitors to take away. Over the course of four months, artworks will be replenished so what awaits visitors will constantly evolve. Selected artists include Christian Boltanski, Claire Fontaine, Uri Aran, Andrea Bowers, Andrea Fraser, General Sisters, Gilbert & George, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Jonathan Horowitz, Alison Knowles, Daniel Joseph Martinez, Jonas Mekas, Yoko Ono, Rachel Rose, Martha Rosler, Tino Sehgal, Haim Steinbach, Amalia Ulman, and Lawrence Weiner, among others.
