“The Jew Who Loves Christmas”

Playwright Abby Koenig's art installation represents and chronicles her family's celebration of Christmas, even though Koenig describes her family as "100% Jewish." On view through January 3 at Fresh Arts Gallery.

Playwright and performer Abby Koenig talks with Houston Public Media’s Troy Schulze about her art installation “The Jew Who Loves Christmas,” an immersive environment of Christmas decorations, lights, fake snow, video and ephemera, which also includes a darkly humorous timeline of her “100% Jewish” family’s celebration of Christmas. Listen to the audio track above. Video imagery of the installation below.
