Weekly Highlights in Jerusalem’s Contemporary Art Scene
Gallery Talk: Methodology on Gothicism | Gallery talk about Gothic literature, music, fashion and cinema in conjunction with the group exhibition “The Larva Society for Psychical Research”. The Society brings artworks by artists both living and dead together, applying transmitter forces to them—objects which enable communication between matter (the work of art) and anti-matter (the spiritual world). Gallery Talk Tuesday, July 9, 19:00 at Jerusalem Artists House, HaNaggid St. 12. For more info, click here.
Exhibition Opening: Surrender to Landscape | A Landscape duet presenting the works of two artists Doron Adar (Israel) and Carlotta Alberti (Switzerland-Italy) who live and breathe nature. Through their art we get an opportunity to live with them in a sublime moment in an outdoor experience, to Surrender to Landscape. This duet of sand and snow creates a fascinating sensual experience. One through camera and the other through brushes. This exhibition will have two chapters. The first one in the heat of the Jerusalem summer, opening on the 11th of July in the Agripas 12 Gallery and the second chapter in the December cold of the Alpine Winter in the artistic space Laboratorio Artistico Carlotta Alberti in Valtourneche, Valle d’Aosta Italy. Exhibition Opening Thursday July 11, 20:00 at Agripas 12 Gallery, Agripas St. 12 (through the courtyard). For more info, click here.
