3300 S. Hoover, Los Angeles
Following the meeting will be a Reception for the Israeli painting exhibition Internally: Emotional Landscapes from Israel, curated by JAI member Sagi Refael. Hope to see you there!
RUTH WEISBERG, PRESIDENT JEWISH ARTISTS INITIATIVE of SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA
The exhibition Internally: Emotional Landscapes from Israel presents artworks by over thirty contemporary Israeli artists working in diverse media: painting, photography, etching, sculpture and mixed media.
Depictions of Israeli landscapes in art have a history of being submerged with political, historical, religious and ethnographic narratives by local artists as well as by visitors, pilgrims and international creators. This current exhibition aims to depict views of Israel from “within”, via personal perspectives and life experiences by those who live there and that are not necessarily conformed by the myths and grandiose weight of expectations prompted by titles as “Holy Land”, “Homeland”, “The Land of Milk and Honey” and “Zion”.
Internally... is divided into four main geographical observations - Desert, Sea, Fields and Urbanity - and takes the viewer through a multitude of visual commentaries about the daily realities of the land that has been fought over for thousands of years, and perhaps can hardly be envisioned otherwise.
This exhibition is dedicated to the memory of Anat Maoz, one of the participating artists, who passed away in October 2019.
Best wishes, Sagi Refael
