Israeli artists showcase their work in New Delhi E-mail

A new exhibition of works by 19 Israeli artists opened on 28 April at the National Gallery of Modern Art in New Delhi to celebrate 25 years of Israeli-Indian diplomatic relations. The exhibition, titled To the End of Land, showcases contemporary Israeli art.

The National Gallery of Modern Art is one of the most important modern art centres in the subcontinent. The exhibition, curated by the Petah Tikva Museum of Art, explores Indian-Israeli co-operation in agriculture and how advanced technologies can be used to both preserve and utilise natural resources, while also touching on themes not usually present in the Indian-Israeli discourse, such as politics and social issues.

The artists include installation and video-artist Sigalit Landau, body-artist and photographer Anisa Ashkar and sculptor Gal Weinstein, among others.

The exhibition presents a wide range of references and approaches to recent changes in the economic and social landscape in Israel, as manifested by the appearance of natural scenery in Israeli contemporary art.
