Pavel Wolberg, Susquehanna Art Museum, Pennsylvania, USA

The Group Exhibition “Visions of Place: Complex Geographies in Contemporary Israeli Art” at Susquehanna Art Museum, offers a unique lens through which to view and better understand the myriad complexities of Israel. Geography, in all its manifestations—physical, personal, religious, political, historical, economic, and more—remains 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 whose contending views of history, culture, and identity cast a revelatory spotlight on modern Israel, while questioning age-old relationships to—and conflicts over—place. The Group Show is open from 9 February until 19 May 2019.

Nelly Agassi at Graham Foundation, Chicago

Spirit of the Waves by Nelly Agassi will open at the Graham Foundation, Chicago / Through a newly commissioned body of work, including a large-scale textile installation, intricate embroideries, works on paper, sculptures, and a performance, Nelly Agassi conjures historical and imagined narratives from the architectural details of the Graham Foundation’s Madlener House. Built in 1901–02 for Albert F. and Elsa S. Madlener, the house was originally designed by architect Richard E. Schmidt, with designer Hugh M. G. Garden, and then renovated in the 1960s by architect Daniel Brenner to transform it into the Foundation’s headquarters. The culmination of Agassi’s 2019 Graham Foundation Fellowship, this exhibition explores erasure, preservation, identity, and architecture’s capacity to change / May 23 – August 03, 2019 / Opening May 23rd at 6 PM

Naama Tsabar, CCA Centre for Contemporary Art, Tel Aviv, Israel

The Center for Contemporary Art Tel Aviv presents Naama Tsabar’s newest large-scale installation, which transforms the entire gallery space into a site-specific sculptural and sonic installation. The installation is comprised of shattered guitars, sprawled on the floor, each restrung to create a collective of sculptures that renders the lower floor into a massive, room-sized instrument. Visitors can play this unique creation, as well as attend special performances by female-identified and gender non-conforming performers (Rotem Frimer, Nina Loeterman, Maya Perry, Sarah Strauss and Moran Victoria Sabbag) that will take place during the run of the exhibition. The Exhibition is up from 22 December 2018 until 9 February 2019.
