Participating artists: Orit Adar Bechar, Nadav Bin-Nun, Ori Drumer, Efim Graboy & Daria Turetski, Keren Gueller, Michal Heiman, Shai Hershkowitz & Maya Tiberman, Elyasaf Kowner, Ruti Sela, Avner Shahaf, Shay-Lee Uziel.
Baldy Heights, Shachar Freddy Kislev - solo exhibition
The exhibition invites the spectator to a microcosm that explores the relations between man, fauna and flora. In Kislev's fictional world, hybrid creatures live in an unusual habitat in which the differentiation between living beings, plants and objects as well as function definitions have become blurry and fluid.
Curator: Noam Segal. The project is accompanied by an I-Pad catalog.
Bill of Lading, Nevet Yitzhak and Raqs Media Collective - Joint Exhibition
Raqs Media Collective from India and Nevet Yitzhak from Israel explore in their works issues concerning social and political time and space in postcolonial societies trying to redefine and rebuild their identity. Using archival materials and observation of popular culture as a tool for examining historical, personal and national contexts, their works raise questions about the role of art in an age inundated with information and images.
Curators: Nirith Nelson and Rotem Ruff.
Michael Adler's Ideological Collection Exhibition
Michael Adler's collection consists of 50 conceptual and post-minimalist artworks spanning 30 years of Israeli art - from the 1960s through the 1990s. About five years ago, when it was donated to the Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art, the museum held an exhibition of selected works from the collection alongside contemporary Israeli artworks engaged in a dialogue with the minimalist tradition. In this exhibition, the original collection will be displayed.
