Crossing Borders: Eva Zeisel

Born and educated in Hungary, Eva Zeisel had previously designed ceramics in Europe, including the USSR, where she was imprisoned for 18 months following a Stalinist purge. Deported to Vienna in 1937, she narrowly escaped arrest by invading Nazi forces before fleeing to New York. This ceramic service, commissioned by MoMA and Castleton China, was the focus of MoMA’s first one-woman exhibition, in 1946, kick-starting Zeisel’s career as an American industrial designer. Learn about Zeisel and other immigrant artists: mo.ma/crossingborders.

Our digital exhibition “Crossing Borders,” presented as part of our #CitizensBorders initiative, showcases works from MoMA’s collection by artists who immigrated to the U.S., often as refugees in search of safe haven. Explore all the works at mo.ma/crossingborders

I think there are two reasons Trump, and Republicans, are working so hard to erase everything, President Obama accomplished.
1. He was a black man in the White House, and they don’t want that repeated. Ever.
2. Trump has a deep DEEP hatred for President Obama and I think that stems from the WH Correspondent’s Dinner in 2011 when Obama roasted Trump quite thoroughly (and well deserved) in front of all those people in that room, and it was televised as well and is now on YouTube. Just looking at the gravelly face of Trump sitting there as Obama was making wisecracks and people were laughing. The people sitting at Trump’s table looked away while trying not to laugh. When Obama finished, Trump got up and left. I know how thin skinned Trump is, and I think that was the night Trump decided to run for POTUS and wreck the United States.

Thin-skinned Trump can dish it out but he can’t take it.

Jay Z, Young Jeezy, LeBron James, Kanye West and Ne-Yo, photographed at Hov and James’ fifth annual “Two Kings” dinner at the Craft restaurant in Century City, California on February 19, 2011.

The dinner and after-party was held annually as part of the NBA “All-Star Weekend” festivities from 2007 to 2013. Before each event Jay and James would spend the day giving back to underprivileged children in the local community. Hov explained why they had included these charitable endeavors as part of the event in 2010: “I think it’s important for us, where we come from, to inspire people from the same neighborhood, same struggle as us, just so they know it’s possible. We’re living our dreams. So dreams are possible, but it’s hard work. We can be president of the United States, but everyone can’t do it. It’s a very difficult thing. [But we’re aiming] just to show these things are attainable.” He later added: “I never had these sort of role models growing up. I never had anyone come around and talk to me. I had to figure it out on my own. One of my promises to myself is that I’ll never forget my journey. I’ll always give back and speak to people that are going through the same thing I was going through.”

At the 2010 event Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones explained to MTV News why he chooses to attend the annual event: “You do have a time in your life when you can hang out or recognize someone who has risen above the norm—significantly above it. Jay-Z has done that in entertainment. LeBron is about that in sports and basketball. You transcend your game, so to speak. They represent that. It’s a privilege to be on the team with them and be a part of the celebration.” Hov’s close friend Diddy would add: “It’s the perfect combination of sports and entertainment. Showing ways we can work together. Use our power in a positive way. They’re both kings in what they do and they’re combining forces. As entrepreneurs and young kings and queens, we’ve got to do more for the better of other people. I’m here as a king to support it.”
