Exhibition Opening: Youth Cuts: The Early Prints of Leo Roth 

LR1
Leo Roth, Tarawa, 1932

A rare 1932 graphical novella by artist Leo Roth (1914-2003) contains thirty original linocuts made in the spirit of German Expressionism. The turbulent black-and-white linocuts tell the tragic story of an abandoned child, raised by a Christian woman in a remote village. The boy learns of his true identity and is torn between women and the Christian world, on the one hand, and the Jewish world on the other. The series of prints presented in this exhibition was discovered by curator Yakir Segev, after rescued from destruction by the artist himself, who had burnt all his early work from Germany.

Exhibition Opening to the public Sunday May 24th at The Jerusalem Print Workshop, Shivtei Israel St. 38. *There will be no opening event. For more info and gallery hours, click here.

Exhibition Opening: As She Transforms

Rakefet Viner-Omer, R.V.O Loves Feminist Issues!, 2011

This exhibition features print works from the Jerusalem Print Workshop collection, created at the workshop during different times by ten female artists in a variety of printing techniques. The works revolve around the poetics of the female body and image, regarding them from a feminine perspective: how they spin and transform, changing appearance, form and existence within the fluid boundaries between outside and inside, the relationship between intimacy and exposure, and the tension between matter and spirit.
