Dvir artists in the new permanent exhibition at Tel Aviv Museum of Art

Dvir Gallery is delighted to announce that the Material Imagination: Israeli Art from the Museum’s Collection, the new permanent exhibition of the contemporary Israeli collection of the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, features many artists represented by the gallery, namely Yossi Breger, Shai Lee Horodi, Yudith Levin, Moshe Ninio, Naama Tsabar and Etti Abergel. The show open on February 17 and is curated by Dalit Matatyahu. “Tel Aviv Museum of Art is delighted to announce the launch of our new permanent display of the Israeli art collection. The exhibition will include more than 120 works by leading artists, some well-known, others making their debut here. The exhibition Material Imagination departs from the story of Israeli art as a chronological narrative running parallel to the national story. Material Imagination is a model of thinking conceived by philosopher Gaston Bachelard during years of delving into the four elements—earth, air, water, and fire—and their incarnations in the imagination and in art. The material imagination thrives in the dialogue between the materials of the world and archaic images—archetypes accumulated and etched in human consciousness.”

Adi Fluman rewarded with Young Artist Award

Dvir Gallery is delighted to announce that Adi Fluman has been awarded the 2021 Ministry of Culture Award to Young Artists. As the Jury members reasoned:

A sculptor who creates digital sculptures using a computer. For her, the medium is the platform through which she examines the materiality of objects in the world. Using computer software, she sculpts objects that hyper-realistically resemble those familiar to us from reality. The objects are made with a high level of completion and seek to deceive the viewer and cause them to momentarily lose their ability to orient themselves and wonder what we are looking at. Her works create a double alienation – one takes place in the artistic course and the other is created in an encounter with new materiality. In a world where the question of origin is no longer relevant because endless versions of everything can be produced and purchased, Fluman raises the question of whether we have reached the point in time where the synthetic exists in our consciousness as a source.

Simon Fujiwara on Artnet

Dvir Gallery is happy to share the article about Once Upon a Who?, Simon Fujiwara’s new show. Who is Who, you ask? The cartoon is the creation of artist Simon Fujiwara—a character who travels Google and pops into various art-world images to try on different personas. Part of the series premiered at the Prada Foundation in 2020. Now, Fujiwara is putting Who back in the spotlight with “Once Upon a Who?” the artist’s second solo exhibition at Esther Schipper in Berlin. The immersive show, filled with couches and with blue plush carpets, is designed to resemble a museum. Different rooms represent “chapters” filled with collage, drawing, sculpture, stop-motion animation, and even animatronic sculpture.

Lawrence Weiner – Out of Sight

Dvir Gallery is happy to share that the Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture presents Weiner’s work, the Out of Sight through the end of January. “Out of Sight” references the “gamification” of learning while the viewer interacts with the marelles in English, Mandarin Chinese, and Spanish. “A person coming in with whatever situation they find themselves in, the minute they have any thoughts about themselves going From Here to There, they will be able to stand in front of the marelle and realize they first must imagine themselves doing it, that’s assuming a position,” said Weiner.
