Am in NYC all week and I snuck off work to trek up to 92nd St and 5th – to The Jewish Museum (my first ever hooky day at any museum!!!) – to see a fantastic three floor exhibition featuring 40 artists’ commissions on Leonard Cohen. (A hero I’ve written about a few times previously here.) Four hours spent soaking up his words, songs, poems, thoughts – with “cheerfulness” inevitably breaking through.
I spent 56 glorious minutes living in George Fok’s amazing portrait of Leonard (Passing Through), using live footage beamed on to three walls of the Gallery with amazing sound.
See if you can steal a couple of hours – even if you play hooky. It will be worth it.
Showing through September 8.
There is a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in.
