Tobaron Waxman Wins Audience Award
My friend Tobaron is the first transgendered artist to be exhibited in a major Jewish museum exhibition – Reinventing Ritual: Contemporary Art and Design for Jewish Life at the Jewish Musuem – and he has won the Audience Award for the favorite work in the exhibition!
Tobaron Waxman is the winner of The Jewish Museum’s first-ever Audience Award, selected from nearly sixty international artists.Votes were gathered from visitors to the exhibition in person and online, between September 13, 2009 and January 11, 2010. Waxman was selected for his provocative installation Opshernish, 2000/2009. The piece examines the construction of gender in Judaism by recreating and condensing a multi-part performance installation.
