Israeli Art as a Window to History & Collective Memory

Wednesday, May 19, 2021 8 Sivan 5781

11:00 AM - 12:30 PMVirtual on Zoom

In this presentation with Israeli artist and educator Shirel Horovitz, we will explore Israeli art from the early 20th century to the present, touching on key themes and seeing the way they highlight and challenge the Israeli narrative. A variety of examples of Israeli art will be shared and discussed.
Questions of identity, religion, gender and politics will be addressed, while emphasizing shifting narratives, and laying the groundwork to understanding the diversity of the contemporary Israeli art scene. Whether you are new to art or an experienced art lover, this is a fascinating way to take a fresh look at the Israeli narrative and an in depth exploration of the Israeli art world.
