Naama Tsabar’s solo exhibititon ‘Inversions’ is on show at Shulamit Nazarian Gallery in Los Angeles. The exhibition title, Inversions, refers to a new body of work that is installed directly into the existing architecture of the gallery. Utilizing the shallow space behind the gallery’s walls, Inversion #1 and Inversion #2 assumes an overlooked space as a site of importance or a platform for action. Fusing together elements from guitars, harps, banjos, and violins, Tsabar creates an inverted instrument that relies on the contortions and penetrations of participants’ bodies for its activation. Inversion #2 includes a singing chamber, with holes and voids in the architecture for the voices of performers to fill. January 10 – February 22, 2020.
On the occasion of his solo exhibition ‘Exhibit Model Six – The Tel Aviv Version’ at CCA Tel Aviv, the artist will present the latest, sixth, iteration of a project called “Exhibit Model”. The idea for “Exhibit Model” was born of the artist’s desire to offer a new take on the conventional framework of realizing an art exhibition as well as budgetary constraints. Thus, the artist decided to replace a straightforward exhibition of objects with a 2D photo installation made up of a wallpaper presenting images of some of his previous exhibitions. December 12, 2019 – Febraury 1, 2020.

Naama Tsaber is part of the group exhibition ‘Soft Architectures’ at Goodman Gallery in Cape Town which interrogates the intersection of architecture and structures of power and resistance. Through sculpture, drawing, print, lens-based media and performance, the work of seven artists each explore the subtle and overt ways in which architecture has been implicated into forms of racialised surveillance, segregated accessibility and the discipline and comportment of bodies, and in turn how architecture has been subverted towards forms of resistance such as strategic concealment and networks of defiance. November 28 – January 11, 2020
The led-light installation ‘MEIYW (My East Is Your West)’ by Shilpa Gupta will
illuminate Rosemary Square in Florida permanently from now on. Known for using technologies and typefaces in her work, the installation
features a sequence of letters, WMYEIAOSUTR, which light up successively. The pulsating light
rearranges the letters to reveal the true meaning of the sentence, “My East Is Your West”, encouraging
viewers to reflect upon social, political, and geographical boundaries and identities.
Simon Fujiwara’s work ‘Empathy I’ will be shown in the group exhibition “Manual Override” at The Shed alongside Lynn Hershman Leeson, Sondra Perry, Martine Syms and Morehshin Allahyari. In Manual Override the artists critique the social, cultural, and ethical issues embedded in emerging technological systems ranging from mass surveillance to predictive policing. Working closely with a theme park ride production company, Simon Fujiwara has developed an immersive simulator ride experience for two people, who experience a ride through the real world as we experience it today: mediated daily through a flood of hyper-images, which has begun to collapse the very sense of reality with the images we consume.
