This group exhibition reflects the nuanced, conflicted relationships between what appears on the surface, social expectations and disappointment, and what is forcefully concealed. Exploring the works of artists that navigate the tensions between what is seen and what cannot be forgotten, or subjugated, this exhibition is interested in the shift from the domain of paid labor to the realm of management of emotions.
What Do Landscapes Want? Scenes from the Michael Hittleman Collection
Israeli artists grapple, undermine, yearn for, redefine and argue with local landscapes and their representation since the early decades of the twentieth century. This exhibition, which unveils the recently donated Michael Hittleman collection of Israeli art, explores some of these internal conflicts, and the ways in which they manifested in local practice.
