“Up in the Air” at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art

Today is First Saturday at the Brooklyn Museum in my hometown and I wanted to highlight an amazing exhibit that went up in March 2015 at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. Tom Friedman’s “Up in the Air” installation is a mesmerizing display of 650 small sculptures of everyday items hanging in the Lightfall at the center of the new museum building. In bold, eye-catching colors, of things like a Cross, a white picket fence, bandaids, a dildo, Coors light six-pack, Friedman’s work is a transfixing commentary on consumerism and pop-culture seemingly floating in mid-air. Check out my pictures of the exhibition below and other images of this amazing art museum. There is also another captivating exhibit in their photography pavilion: a selection of the works of Robert Capa.
