About the Exhibition Collecting Dust Contemporary Israeli Art
The pervasive presence of dust – as matter or metaphor – is the thread that connects the works on view in this exhibition. A century after Marcel Duchamp and Man Ray’s seminal Dust Breeding, the artists whose works comprise this presentation give their own interpretations of dust’s enigmatic nature. Whether focusing on intimate or remote surroundings – in the studio, in the city, or in the expanses of the desert – they engage with the medium of dust to probe such perennial issues as the passing of time, creation and erosion, presence and absence.
COLLECTING DUST presents 45 works from the last decade by Israeli artists active in the fields of painting, photography, installation, and video, among them Ilit Azoulay, Gilad Efrat, Irit Hemmo, Dana Levy, Micha Ullman, Gal Weinstein, Sharon Ya'ari, and Yuval Yairi.
