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.
