Take Me (I'm Yours)

$31,018

Opening September 16, the Jewish Museum in New York presents Take Me (I’m Yours), an exhibition that allows visitors to interact with, touch, and even take home works of art by 40 contemporary artists. Every visitor to Take Me (I’m Yours) will be invited to leave with an art collection to call their own. As a backer of this project, you can help us replenish the thousands of art objects we will be giving away for free over the course of five months.    

ABOUT THE ARTISTS  

Take Me (I’m Yours) features art by 40 artists working in a variety of media, from sculpture, works on paper, installation, performance, and digital media. On average, 10,000 of each work will be produced for visitors to take away, including temporary tattoos by Lawrence Weiner, air dispensers by Yoko Ono, pill capsules by Carsten Höller, and more. That means we’ll need to produce at least 400,000 pieces to ensure that all our visitors will be able to participate in the exhibition.

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT 

Take Me (I’m Yours) at the Jewish Museum embraces the idea that an artwork takes on new meaning depending on who owns the work and how they interact with it. Themes of community, giving, and sharing are especially suited to the democratic ideas of Take Me (I’m Yours). Through Kickstarter, we hope to extend the ideas of giving and sharing to anyone in the world. Back this campaign and help the Jewish Museum make art available to anyone who comes to the exhibition. 

ABOUT TAKE ME (I'M YOURS) 

In 1995 at the Serpentine Galleries in London, curator Hans Ulrich Obrist and artist Christian Boltanski brought together 12 artists to explore concepts of value and participation in contemporary art. Over 20 years later, Take Me (I’m Yours) at the Jewish Museum has expanded the roster of artists with new commissions specific to New York City. In the first U.S. presentation of the exhibition, organized by Jewish Museum curators Jens Hoffmann and Kelly Taxter, themes of giving and community will be reanimated in the context of a Jewish cultural institution. 

ABOUT THE JEWISH MUSEUM 

Located on New York City’s Museum Mile, the Jewish Museum is an art museum and a hub for art and Jewish culture for people of all backgrounds. The Museum maintains a unique collection of fine art, Judaica, antiquities, folk art, and broadcast media that reflect the global Jewish experience over more than 4,000 years. Our distinguished exhibition history includes some of the most seminal exhibitions of the 20th and 21st centuries.

Anyone can contribute and take part in Take Me (I’m Yours). Back this project for the opportunity to take home artwork being produced for the exhibition and limited edition prints by select artists, as well as exclusive opportunities to meet our curators and engage with the exhibition through special events.
