Summer is always a dry season, even in the art world. After few nice discoveries last week , but also few curatorial disappointments, we are very looking forward for the opening of ‘Showtime’ at the Helena Rubinstein Pavilion for Contemporary Art.
You will notice that this week the Israeli artist Alona Rodeh is on fire. After her exceptional installation “Above and Beyond” at the Center for Contemporary Art in Tel Aviv, she is back this week with two major events.
Here are few options to ARTSY UP this hot upcoming week and welcome the month of August :

Critique in the Age of Political Art
Following Noah Simblist’s lecture of last week on how artists can often act as outsiders to criticize, explicitly or implicitly, the social ills of a society foreign to them, the CCA is hosting a 3 hours seminar “exploring the possible critical modes that art can and should take today and the models of critique that we can use to evaluate politically and socially engaged practices”.
Note that the entrance is free.
When | July 29 AT 6pm
Where |The Center for Contemporary Art (5 Kalisher street, Tel Aviv)
“Three major projects, each spread on a separate level of the Pavilion, comprise this exhibition by artists who deal with sound in a visual way. Each of the works delivers sound as physical presence in space and examines the term “show” while conceptually and physically deconstructing it within the exhibition space”
The exhibition curated by Hadas Maor will feature the following artists : Janet Cardiff (born in Canada, 1957), Naama Tsabar (born in Israel, 1982) and Alona Rodeh (born in Israel, 1979).
The artist and various musicians will perform on the work every Thursday at 8:30 p.m.
Participating musicians include: Tamar Aphek, Ariel Armoni, Gilbert Broid, Ben Drusinsky, Maya Dunietz, Or Edry, Roei Freilich, Noam Inbar, Ram Orion, Zoe Polanski, Neta Polturak, Avishag Cohen Rodrigues, Yaron Sarel, Gamliel Sasportas, Adam Scheflan, Naama Tsabar, Or Zubalsky, and others.
