This issue – the sixtieth – is published right after the arrival of the new book covering the 2018 Israeli art world. As always, the hefty volume incorporates the best Israeli art of the year, as reflected in a variety of articles. The information treasured within its pages shall be found in museum shops and libraries all over the world; It will obviously be distributed among directors, curators and artists as well. The constant documentation of the Israeli art field is highly significant and shall serve as an important tool for years to come.
A notable exhibition of the Shiff Prize winners is on display at Tel Aviv Museum. One of the winners is Amnon David Ar, whose art works are introduced in an article herein. Another exhibition at this museum is that of Yitzhak Golombek’s works. Another yet, at the same museum, is looking into various perspectives of the political status quo in areas shared by people of different religions, and into the agreed-upon compromises that allow all believers to live by their faiths. This is an intriguing exhibition - it also includes suggestions which have not come into fruition, yet some of them are indeed worthy of consideration. The documentary film is very wisely and professionally made, thus successfully illustrating both the atmosphere and the trivial human events surrounding the status quo.
A very interesting exhibition of Ruth Schloss is on display at the Artists House in Tel Aviv. Schloss’s art has finally reached its due artistic status in recent years – to a great extent, thanks to the devotion of Irit Levin, her curator in the last years of her life, and the one looking after her artistic estate since her passing. Another interesting exhibition by Yuval Danieli – curated by Yossi Vasid – is on display at Zuzu Gallery, and is definitely worth a visit on the way up north.
Congratulations to Avner Bar Hama on receiving the Ministry of Education Prize for artists in the fields of Jewish culture. An interesting group exhibition titled “My heart is in the east“ is on display at Tel Aviv University, and Tuly Ziv’s fascinating exhibition can be visited at the Artists House in Rishon Le-Zion. All of these and more – in the following pages of this issue.
Naturally, moments of joy tend to mix up with grief, and thus we sadly part with Meir Salomon – an original artist and a gentle, broad-minded man. May his soul rest in peace, he shall be missed here.
