I walked into a tight
in-between nook of a gallery space and was transported within a minute to a different dimension. It remindef me of the first time i sat at the #rothko chapel when i was young.
I sat with the artist @ayasarig.art and our friend, the artist @artmichelleg and we shared a bit of intimate time in the exhibition. In the 'cathedral' that she created during the #shivah for her beloved gone brother. Seven days; each day being present and painting. Ritual. Internal dialigue. Mourning. Healing.
I suspect both #markrothko #cytwombly were summoned. (It just so happens, that their respective spaces/cathedral/gallery are neighbors in Houston. @menilcollection Still processing. #womenartists

A beautiful exhibition by @artmichelleg at the #ביתהאמנים #telavivartisthouse

How might an artist use her family legacy in the form of her grandfather's photographic archive from his first visi t to Tel Aviv in 1913?
Through apropriation and mixed media manipulation #michellegavrielov creates a hybrid space on her canvas. Her grandfather's original photograhic images of scenes set in Haifa, Tel Aviv and Sharem a Sheikh, the Mediterranean and nascent Bauhaus architecture -- are transformed through additions and erasure to become contemporary dreamlike and biting works of art. Highly recommended.

I guess as a daughter of a retired Jewish scrap metal broker, i have a soft spot for sculptors that recycle metal. Here, @kaiss_mahmoud #mahmoudkaiss does an excellent job of creating beautiful sculptural forms in high gloss, spread in a space that features wooden forms and hamging dangling floating apples galore. Like being in a minimalist wonderland.

@creativetime is honored to announce VIGIL, new light projections by Jenny Holzer.
Please join us after sundown at Rockefeller Center, where Holzer will bring together writings by poets, survivors, and citizens across the United States to address the pressing issue of gun violence. The large-scale work will illuminate iconic building facades with scrolling texts, magnifying the voices of people who know and have reflected on the everyday reality of gun violence.

Holzer selected texts from Bullets into Bells: Poets & Citizens Respond to Gun Violence, stories from Everytown for Gun Safetyas collection Moments that Survive, and poems by teens growing up in a nation affected by shootings in their communities and schools. The project calls urgent attention to the impact and prevalence of this devastating and timely national concern.

Stop playina around and RSVP for aSTOP PLAYING IN MY FACE!a On view Wed, September 4th at our Fall Opening Reception!
.
aStop Playing in My Face!a combines all of @rashaadnewsomeas conceptual themes into an animated embodiment of Newsomeas collage figures set to an original score created in collaboration with LA-based DJ and producer Hit Maker Chinx. The figures in the video exist in a state of dissociative identity disorder, characterized by the appearance of several very distinct identities such as feminist author and activist #bellhooks, YouTube personality and ballroom legend Samantha James Revlon, and Trans Activist #JanetMock.

Let me say this to the president: I am a proud Jewish person and I have no concerns about voting Democratic. And in fact, I intend to vote for a Jewish man to become the next president of the United States.
