The Marlene Meyerson JCC is presenting a new exhibition curated by Aya Goshen called Floating Walls, a group exhibition by Dana Levy, Gal Cohen, Lee Tal, Michal Geva, Naomi Safran-Hon, Noa Charuvi and Zac Hacmon.
Floating Walls presents a multidisciplinary survey of works made by seven Israeli artists based in New York. The exhibition incorporates site-specific installation, video, painting, and sculpture. By using a variety of materials across media, the artists explore and reimagine the walls that surround them as both material and metaphor.
As Israelis living in New York, the artists in this exhibition are familiar with migration and reconstituting one’s definition of and relationship to home. Additionally, the works on view allow one to reflect on how the COVID-19 pandemic impacted our sense of place, as we entered periods of lockdown in our domestic environment and renegotiated our position regarding public and shared spaces.
The exhibition is on view until February 28 in the Samuel Priest Rose Building, 334 Amsterdam Avenue at 76th Street, NYC. For more information call 646-505-4444 or write firstname.lastname@example.org
