September 17-December 10: Reflective Geophilosophy
by Israeli artist Dorit Feldman
Monday-Saturday, 9 am-5 pm; Sunday, 9 am-2 pm
This exhibition features 14 works by the renowned Israeli artist, Dorit Feldman (born 1956). The exhibition is part of the larger regional celebration, A Moveable Feast of Israeli Arts and Culture – connected to Visions of Place: Complex Geographies in Contemporary Israeli Art, co-curated by Professors Martin Rosenberg (Rutgers University-Camden) and J. Susan Isaacs (Towson University). Visions of Place, simultaneously on view at the Stedman Art Gallery, Rutgers University-Camden, is the largest exhibition of contemporary Israeli art to be presented in the U.S. in over a decade, featuring 36 artists and 51 works. Dorit Feldman has two works in that exhibition, as well. Professor Isaacs is the curator of Feldman’s related exhibition in the Gershman Gallery.
Dorit Feldman is a native and current resident of Tel Aviv. As a conceptual artist, her works emphasize the construction of unity from multiplicity. She photographs archaeological, historical, and geographical sites, viewing them as ordered geometric spaces or texts written on the earth. By deconstructing and reconstructing, Feldman blends these photographs with carefully selected quotes from ancient maps, constructing an innovative and original narrative.
Feldman has presented 30 solo exhibitions and participated in hundreds of group exhibitions in leading galleries and museums throughout Israel, Europe, and the U.S. Along with nearly 100 public pieces, a wide range of Feldman’s work is held in private collections around the world.
Support for this exhibition provided, in part, by the Dolfinger-McMahon Foundation and the Consulate General of Israel to the Mid-Atlantic Region.
