February in Tel Aviv is sweet. Not particularly today with the storm that is about to blow on the city, but it is definitely a place where you want to spend your winter. When in Brussels the cold will make me rush from a place to another, strolling like a mad person to avoid the freezing breeze (don’t get me wrong it can be quiet charming too), walking around Tel Aviv while visiting its galleries is definitely a must. Taking the time to discover the neighbourhoods, to stop for a drink on a  sunny terrasse, and to debate about the shows we just saw. Gallery “touring” can be a very social activity, I never just go to a gallery to snap some pics, I like taking my time, chat about it, read about it, and not only to limit my experience to the actual exhibition. I guess it is a bit of a ritual for me at this point.

Whatever is your gallery routine, there is some upcoming exhibitions that will definitely keep you busy. I listed for you few of the shows I’m looking forward to discover this month in Tel Aviv. As always keep sending me your suggestions either by email infothebubblistblog@gmail.com or in the comment section bellow.

OPENING : February 12th

EXHIBITION : Habibti A State For All Its Citizens

ARTIST(S) : Zamir Shatz

VENUE : Rosenfeld Contemporary Art Gallery : 1, HaMif’al Tel Aviv

WHY ? : I never see the work of Zamir Shatz in the flesh yet, but I’m looking forward to discover his exhibitions that looks like a gallery of identity photos. I have a thing for ID/Passport pictures since I moved in Israel, and that I’m going every year through the Visa process and have to provide many of those. There is really something interesting about theses formal official portraits.

OPENING : February 12th

EXHIBITION : Nothing but Darkness

ARTIST(S) : Uri Gershuni

VENUE : Chelouche Gallery : 7 Mazeh Street, Tel Aviv

WHY ? : Gershuni’s black and white photographs are intense and beautiful. He is presenting three intersecting new series of photographs taken during his recent stay in Germany. He is probably one of the most talented Israeli photographer, and definitely worth a stop at the Chelouche Gallery. Also note that he is also showing at the Israel Museum until August 29th.

OPENING : February 16th

EXHIBITION : Lo-Fi

ARTIST(S) : Russell Tyler

VENUE : Alon Segev Gallery : 6 Rothschild Blvd., Tel Aviv

WHY ? : I’m completely biased with this one. I love Tyler’s work, his way of using the canvas and creating amazing texture. I already stopped by the Gordon Gallery 2 as they are also showing some of his works, and the painting were literally vibrating. I’m curious to see how it will look like in a bigger space. A must see.
