Visions of Place offers a unique lens through which to view and better understand the complexities of Israel. Geography, in all its many manifestations – physical, personal, religious, political, historical, economic, among others – is an inescapable part of Israeli life, psyche, and art. The exhibition includes approximately 50 works, including photographs, videos, installations, paintings, sculptures, and mixed media, by 34 contemporary artists who explore contending views of history and identity, questioning relationships to, and conflicts over, place.
Although focused specifically on Israel, the topics raised by the exhibition have wide interest and applicability in the broader contemporary world. Visions of Place demonstrates the richness, complexity, and diversity of the contemporary Israeli art landscape, and by extension, Israeli society. It provides a thought-provoking artistic experience that catalyzes important dialogue on the issues illustrated by Israel’s contemporary artists in their exploration of place.
