—Contemporary Jewish Museum San Francisco Presents ‘Looted’: A Multimedia Installation Reflecting on WWII Art Theft and Legacy

Contemporary Jewish Museum will present Looted, a multimedia video installation by Polish artist Dorota Mytych. On view August 30, 2024, through July 27, 2025. In Looted, the hands of four painters—Jessica Houston (Canada), Marcia Teusink (UK), Tracy Grubbs (USA), and Mytych herself—recreate and subsequently erase artworks stolen from museums and private collections in Poland during World War II. Mytych’s installation prompts viewers to consider the legacy of art pillaged in the wake of war and colonization and asks how we recall histories of loss and disappearance in the present. An opening reception will be held on September 5, 2024.

Contemporary Jewish Museum Senior Curator Heidi Rabben organized this installation of Looted. A series of public programs, to be announced, will extend the exhibition content. Sponsorship for the installation is provided by the San Francisco Arts Commission.
