Light x Eight: The Hanukkah Project marks the Jewish festival of lights with an exhibition of installations by eight emerging and mid-career artists. While the use of light and the number eight are certainly symbolic in this Jewish context, the specific way that light is used in each of these pieces extends the metaphor of celebration in surprising and unexpected ways. Light is a symbol of transformation in the story of Hanukkah: when an oil lamp miraculously burns for eight days, a desperate situation is changed into one of hope.

All of the works in this exhibition make the symbolism of the Hanukkah story more tangible as they explore light’s transformative properties. Here, light either emanates from or is directed at a work as a means of transforming simple everyday materials into luminous objects and spaces. Light has fascinated artists for centuries. Recently, however, many artists have moved away from depicting light to using light itself as a medium, exploring its physical attributes as well as its effects on vision and perception. Together, the works in this exhibition reveal the extraordinarily varied approaches used by contemporary artists working in this common vein.

Light x Eight: The Hanukkah Project, the fifth exhibition on this theme organized by The Jewish Museum, can be found on the first floor in the Grant Gallery; adjacent to the staircase in the museum's permanent exhibition, Culture and Continuity: The Jewish Journey; and on the third floor in the Jerome Greene Contemporary Gallery.

Underplayed: A Mix-Tape of Music-Based Videos
Underplayed explores the intersection between fine art, pop culture and the DIY explosion. For years visual artists and musicians have collaborated to produce album covers and concert posters. But the music video has spawned a whole new art practice that finds artists collaborating with musicians in entirely new ways. This video project co-curated by Julio Morales and Berin Golonu takes a look at artists who incorporate music with their imagery or who use the music video itself, as a form for creative expression. Also with an amazing beautiful viewing pod specially designed for the exhibition by architect Kyu Che.

Sample of some of the Underplayed artists:
Assume Vivid Astro Focus, Miguel Calderon, Martha Colburn, with Deerhoof, Ho Tzu Nyen, Josh Lazcano, Juan Luna-Avin, Jeroen Offerman, Eamon Ore-Giron, Laureana Toledo, Marco Fusinato with Thurston Moore.

"[]" (ACRYLIC ON CANVAS, B & W WITH TURQUOISE STRIPE) by ZORROZ SPICER
Location: Galatea Offsite-San Francisco Apartment

"[]" (ACRYLIC ON CANVAS, B & W) by ZORROZ SPICER
Location: Galatea Offsite-San Francisco Apartment

I caught Zorroz Spicer's exhibit along the wire fence to a basketball court on, I think, the corner of 6th Avenue and Third in New York City. He's only been painting for two years, but has the chops naturally. These are abstract works that would be at home in Chelsea. Anyway, I cheerfully picked up two! And I wish him Good Luck with finding a gallery; he said one has already expressed interest in exhibiting him.
