Weekly Highlights in Jerusalem’s Contemporary Art Scene
Gallery Talk: Zaum Attack | Gallery talk about the exhibition “Zaum Attack” with Nino Biniashvili and curator Hadas Glazer. Nino Biniashvilis exhibition Zaum Attack is based on one of the most important projects of Russian futurism in the early 20th century: the language of Zaum. She explores the context and relevance of contemporary avant-garde attempts to everyday life, particularly in the context of experiences around language while immigrating. There will also be a screening of the film “Journey to the Center of Capricorn” by Rui Tenreiro, who Biniashvili is hosting in the gallery’s ‘artist wall’. Gallery Talk Wednesday December 4th, 19:00 at Art Cube Artists Studios, HaUman St. 26, floor 3. For more info, click here.
Recommended Exhibition: The 11th Sybil | Ten sibyls, pagan prophetesses, prophesized in the ancient world. In Christianity and in the history of art, the sibyls were compared to the Hebrew prophets and were associated with nature, intuition, a clear and extensive vision, and exceptionally long lives. This exhibition seeks to discover the eleventh sibyl, and foretell a contemporary feminine prophecy that naturally relates to the subjects of gender and feminism, but also to ecology, healing, religion, and culture. Alongside these, it wishes to add a broad universal dimension, perhaps even spiritual, to the feminist expression. On view at Beita Gallery, Yafo St. 155.
Recommended Exhibition: The Gift | The Gift will present the work of contemporary Palestinian artists at Al Ma’mal Foundation for Contemporary Art, New Gate, bringing together artists from across Palestine, including Jerusalem’s suburbs, Bethlehem, Haifa, Majdal Shams, Nazareth, Gaza, and Ramallah, who work in various creative disciplines, including painting, photography, drawing, video and film. The selection of works reflects on the remarkable and growing Palestinian Art scene and our rich cultural heritage, challenging issues concerning Palestinian life, identity, society and environment. The Gift exhibition intends to make art more accessible to our community to enjoy, allowing art enthusiasts to engage, view, enjoy and purchase art. On view at Al Mamal Center for Contemporary Art, Al Jawalida St. 8. For more info, click here.
