“In July of 1837, attempting to grasp the mysterious enigma of evolution, Charles Darwin scribbled down a framework for his speculations in his first “transmutation notebook”. This intuitive drawing of an evolutionary tree is headlined by the words ‘I think’ and is a precursor to Darwin’s radical theory of evolution, common descent, differential survival and natural selection.

Simon Fujiwara, Thomas Hirschhorn and Dor Guez in the Israel Museum

Dvir Gallery is happy to announce that Simon Fujiwara, Thomas Hirschhorn and Dor Guez are featured in the Israel Museum’s new group show, How Long Is Now. New in Contemporary Art, from September 3, 2021 to June 15, 2022 in Jerusalem. The phantoms of the past – near or far, acknowledged or suppressed – hover over the contemporary artworks shown here, which have recently enriched the Museum’s collection. Set in a wide variety of political contexts and geographical locations, they reveal how history appears to seep through the cracks of the present, returning to haunt it and refusing to let go. By focusing our gaze on the here and now, the artists in the exhibition invite us to confront events from the past that still reverberate today. Some search for bygone times, uncovering layers of memory, while others attempt to capture and preserve that which is about to fade away.

Mircea Cantor contributing to the 65th anniversary of Romania’s UNESCO membership

Dvir Gallery is happy to announce that Mircea Cantor has contributed to the postage stamps issue Romania, 65 years in the UNESCO. Danube Delta, 30 years in the UNESCO World Heritage, released on July 27. The postage stamps feature the fauna of the UNESCO World Heritage site Danube Delta. The issue comes with a perforated souvenir sheet whose illustrations, depicting in a modern graphic animals and plants from the Danube Delta, are made by the appreciated Romanian-born artist Mircea Cantor. It is for the first time when the artist collaborates in the development of a Romanian postage stamp issue. Mircea Cantor on the illustrations: “I wanted to reproduce, through the line of my drawing, the presence and richness of the biodiversity present in the Delta: in water (fish), on land (mammals) and in the air (birds). Basically, the trilogy of the defining elements of the Danube Delta: Water, Earth, Air.” The artist’s vision also reflects “the reference, also through drawing, to three other elements that complement those listed above, namely: the vegetable kingdom (water lily, reed), the animal kingdom (birds, fish) and the human environment (fishermen and human communities with traditions and lifestyle related to the Danube Delta area).”
