Texas artists exhibit in Israel • Jerusalem Post staff Meridian 34 is part of an ongoing cultural exchange between Texas and Israel, exhibiting the unique works of a select group of Texas-based artists in Tel Aviv. It runs through April 10 at Machon Hamayim Municipal Gallery in Givatayim.
This collaborative project, co-curated by Doron Polak and Matt Anzak, strives to challenge the traditional conventions of Western art; and the concept of the exhibition is rooted in organic and intuitive invention. Playful in spirit, the intention of the exhibition is to branch out toward a sacred sphere of geometric abstraction and dynamic equilibrium.
In contrast to a standard gallery or salon-style approach, the presentation of artwork relates as an ethereal conversation; though the work is still grounded in figurative representations, expressionism and pop culture.
Some of the Texan artists include Patricia Rodriguez, John Milton, Michael Broussard, Etty Horowitz, Liz London, Duke Horn and Matt Anzak.
In the previous selection sponsored by Alon USA, Israeli artists traveled to North Texas to collaborate with Texan artists at a multi-venue exhibition, A Tree in a Field, which took place at LuminArte Gallery in the Dallas Design District, as well as in the new corporate headquarters of Alon USA and in the offices of the Texas-Israel Chamber of Commerce.
Ongoing at Machon
