Israeli Art in Jerusalem


The Jerusalem Artists’ House, at 12 Shmuel Hanagid Street, just launched several solo exhibitions featuring the work of Israeli artists. Dvora Morag, a second-generation Holocaust survivor, addresses some of the core issues of Israeli life in “The (non) Domestic Poem.” Elisheva Shaked’s photographs, “Salt of the Earth,” focus on the Dead Sea Works factory, following in the footsteps of “the new topographic photographers” of the 1960s, who reexamined the myth of the western landscape through a critical, and at times cynical, lens. However, her critique is blended with a love of beauty and nature. In “White Desert,” Judith Appleton exhibits minimalistic paintings of color patches that are located between the figurative and the abstract. In “Pink Revenge,” Inbal Mendes-Flohr presents images of women fighting back against violence in a battle that sometimes is harsh and vindictive. On display until February 7, 2015.
