Fish Forms: Lamps by Frank Gehry

Now open at the Jewish Museum, Fish Forms: Lamps by Frank Gehry.

Words from the Jewish Museum’s blog -

Fish Forms: Lamps by Frank Gehry presents 8 lamps by the internationally acclaimed architect Frank Gehry (b. 1929, Toronto, Canada). Known for his colorful and sculptural buildings, Gehry’s New York ventures include the IAC building in Chelsea, which peers over the Westside Highway with its undulating white exterior, and the newly erected Beekman Tower in Lower Manhattan. Inspired by The Jewish Museum’s own fish lamp, curator Ruth Beesch has organized an intimate exhibition in Offit Gallery. In this diverse selection of Gehry’s lamps, she illustrates the significance of fish form in his work.

The exhibition has also been reviewed by the NYT. Open through October 31, 2010.
