Teatime is reinvented as a new tradition, with tea, treats and a twist during this installment of Sukkah Studio. Artist C.K.Itamura’s participatory social practice project invites visitors of all ages to sit in the sukkah, sip tea with the artist, enjoy light snacks, reflect on the idea of creating new traditions, and paint hand-formed paper tea cups that will later become part of a large installation of over ten thousand pieces painted by hundreds of people over the course of multiple years.
Inspired by the holiday of Sukkot, a Jewish holiday celebrating the harvest, The CJM has built its own sukkah (meaning “booth” or “hut”) for gathering and community building. The Museum invited six local artists to inhabit our Sukkah Studio as an open studio, providing an inviting space for the artists to share their practice with visitors and work with interested folks to make something together.
Each artist will inhabit the Sukkah Studio for one day. Drop by the sukkah in the Koret Taube Grand Lobby for one open studio or attend all of them!
