Israeli Art under Quarantine
An intimate and inspirational journey into the Israeli art scene in search of expression under new circumstances.
Like most of the world, the Israeli artists and institutions were under quarantine from mid-March and are only now starting to emerge into slightly less constricted interactions and movements. Creativity during this time was overflowing with a search of new ways of expression and a deep look at the intersections between creativity, daily life and the professional art scene.
In this talk we’ll explore these questions through specific works, platforms and conversations that were created during the last couple of months.
Through sculpting, drawing and sound, Shirel Horovitz’s installations and performances explore the relations between cities and communities.
She earned her BFA from Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, her MA from the Interdisciplinary Art Program at Tel Aviv University, and has been studying and practicing Zen-Buddhist inquiry meditation since 2006. Her works have been exhibited in museums and galleries across Israel and the US.
Alongside her art practice Shirel leads tours, lectures and is an art consultant with a variety of organizations among them – Azrieli LTD, Via Sabra, Da’at, The Cultivist, CWB, Context and more. Her website is shirelhorovitz.com
