Rachel Rabinovitch

Nocturnal Wakefulness

Curator: Sally Haftel Naveh

Winner of the 2022 Osnat Mozes Painting Prize for a Young Artist

 

In their statement, the prize committee members noted: Rachel Rabinovitch’s paintings affect the viewer in a wide range of aspects: physical, emotional, and intellectual. Prima facie, it looks like current painting, which draws a line between Symbolism and Surrealism, thereby introducing themes pertaining to Jewish tradition and the external “natural world” that is being studied.

Curator: Ravit Harari

As part of a long-standing tradition, the Artists’ House continues to welcome new members to the Jerusalem Artists Association every year, opening the annual exhibition season with a display of their works. This year, three new members have joined the association: Judith Anis, Sara Shira Cutler, and Klil Wexler. Each of them has a different mother tongue and was raised in a different culture, which may be the reason why, although they all engage primarily in painting and drawing, their oeuvres differ entirely in terms of painterly language, artistic practice, and themes.

Natasha Kuznetsova

Multiple Reality

Curator: Nava T. Barazani

Compressing real space and time into simultaneous online dimensions enables us to be in all places and times without actually being in them. On the one hand, there is the slow linear world, and on the other—an infinite, networked, constantly updated world, assimilated into the boundaries of our body and consciousness.

Between 1973 and 1975, Dutch artist Bas Jan Ader created a series of works entitled In Search of the Miraculous, in which he made himself and his body an object of study, while exploring tensions between control and surrender.

Curator: Ofer Getz

Curator: Smadar Tsook

The virtual wing, a new initiative of the Jerusalem Artists’ House, is a platform for staging exhibitions in which the physical setting of the historic building is shifted to cyberspace, adding a new display wing to the house’s extensive activities. The exhibition spaces of the Jerusalem Artists’ House are transformed into a virtual venue, where various exhibitions may be displayed, calling on the creative and curatorial imagination to challenge the space in its virtual format. The idea behind this platform is not to document the physical exhibitions on view at the Artists’ House, but to offer an apt space for displaying works essentially related to the virtual space.  [Continue reading..]
