Contemporary Israeli art was born from immigrant communities searching for a collective expressive identity in a newly won state. In this lecture-based class, gain an understanding of the international impact of Israeli artists of our time. Explore the art colony of Safed and the open-air sculpture gardens in Haifa. Be enchanted with Yaacov Agam’s kinetic installations of ever-changing color. And discover how Israeli realism shocks with its harshness as it flirts with the sacred.
Thursdays, January 24, February 7 and 21, March 7 and 21, April 4 and 18, and May 2, 1:30–3:00 pm
