Description

Works from 25 artists, most of them teachers of the Bezalel School of Art Design Department, that challenge the borders between Contemporary Art and Judaica. The exhibition presented the Bezalel School’s world view and artistic language, and showed how these are expressed in religious ritual objects. All participating artists studied, taught or directed the Jewelry and Fashion Department, and have become leading figures of contemporary Judaica design. The exhibition included a special tribute exhibition in memory of Zelig Segal, a contemporary Jewish art pioneer who passed away in that year. Curators’ essay. Image and description of each exhibit. 24 items (main exhibition).
