Time flies when you are constantly working, and have a very busy life on the side. Tel Aviv is such a lively city that it is hard to take a break, to press pause and enjoy life in slow motion for few minutes. Art galleries and museums are magical that way, they allow you to have an interlude, a quiet space where you can think and meet an artist without being distracted by the bubbly life around.
I picked for you five exhibitions you have to see in Tel Aviv during the end of December. As usual feel free to send me your suggestions at firstname.lastname@example.org or to add them in the comment section below.
OPENING : December 18th AT 8 pm
EXHIBITION : Hiding Wood In Trees
ARTIST(S) : Wilfredo Prieto and Ariel Schlesinger
VENUE : Center for Contemporary Art : 2 Tsadok HaCohen,Tel Aviv
WHY ? : We recently saw Ariel Schlesinger incredibly strong show at the Dvir Gallery, and had the chance last summer to see Wilfredo Prieto very powerful exhibition at the S.M.A.K. in Genk, so we just can’t wait to see a collaboration between such brilliant artists.
OPENING : December 20th AT 7.30 pm
EXHIBITION : Melting Walls
ARTIST(S) : Group Exhibition
VENUE : Igal Ahouvi Art Collection : The Genia Schreiber University Art Gallery, Tel Aviv University
WHY ? : A great occasion to discover Igal Ahouvi rich collection. If like me you are a big fan of Andro Wekua’s work it is a great occasion to see one of his piece in Israel.
OPENING : December 25th AT 9 pm
EXHIBITION : New Exhbition
ARTIST(S) : Zoya Cherkassky
VENUE : Rosenfeld Contemporary Art Gallery : 1, HaMif’al Tel Aviv
WHY ? : Born in Kiev Cherkassky is now working and living in Tel Aviv. Her artwork is known as politically engaged, and very accurate in her way of depicting some realities of the life in Israel. I never had the chance to see it in the flesh, so I’m very looking forward to it.
OPENING : December 25th AT 8 pm
EXHIBITION : Have We Met before?
ARTIST(S) : Gil Haller
VENUE : ArtStation Gallery : HaTachana Compound – Cabin 14, Tel Aviv
WHY ? : Inspired by vintage magazines and old family albums, Haller succeeds to inject into his contemporary work (paintings and photographies) a touch from another time. A must see.
