Weekly Highlights in Jerusalem’s Contemporary Art Scene

Exhibition Opening: Drawing Biennale | The Seventh Biennale of Drawing in Israel, held under the auspices of and produced by the Jerusalem Artists’ House, has established its status as a unique and comprehensive artistic enterprise since 2001. Traces VII – Action Line, the Seventh Biennale of Drawing, draws away from the conventional perception of drawing as a linear action unfolding on a two-dimensional support – usually paper. Instead, the exhibition seeks to manifest the power of drawing in a three-dimensional sphere, and to present specific aspects in the fields of sculpture, installation, performance and sound, which are nourished by a deep understanding of drawing while existing in three-dimensional space. Exhibition Opening Saturday November 23rd, 18:30 at The Jerusalem Artists House, HaNaggid St. 12. For more info, click here.
Exhibition Opening: Dynamo | The exhibition “Dynamo” brings new works together originating in various modes of sculpture. All of them are based on an initial act of drawing followed by a response. The show focuses on the emergence of drawing in sculpture alongside volume, material, and form. The function of drawing in it is neither decorative nor superfluous; it constitutes the work, although it is not necessarily present at its starting point.
