About the Program
In-depth, guided look at the exhibitions Jason Lazarus: Live Archive.
Rising star and Jewish artist, Jason Lazarus has his first West Coast museum exhibition. Live Archive explores collective public archives, personal memory, and the role of photography and collecting in contemporary art and identity. Chicago-based Lazarus is known for using both traditionally developed photography and found and solicited images and texts in collaborative installations and innovative crowd-sourced, online community projects. Lazarus’ work simultaneously directs attention inward toward the personal and outward toward the historical. The three main aspects of the exhibition map onto three key elements of the Jewish experience: memory, prophecy, and learning. The exhibition is organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago.
Jason Lazarus: Live Archive is organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. The exhibition is sponsored by BMO Harris Bank. Supporting sponsorship of The Contemporary Jewish Museum’s presentation of Jason Lazarus: Live Archive is provided by Rayko Photo Center.
