Changing Perspectives

 

Opening: 16.5.15

The present cluster of exhibitions seeks to present the issue of the relation to "place" in Israeli art. What is the effect of the presence of the artist here in Israel, or his absence from the country, on the representation of the "Israeli place", of the "here and now"? The artistic oeuvre displayed in these shows expresses the tension between an artistic practice that is activist and socio-politically oriented, and one that seeks the realms of dream and fantasy. It seems that the further away an artist is from the pit of the volcano, the more it sparks his interest, and the closer he is, the more urgent is his need to escape.
