Alternative Narratives in Israeli Art: Gender, Identity and Belonging
Tuesday, February 19, 2019
UCLA Royce Hall, Room 314
Los Angeles, CA 90095 United States
The tremendous diversity of Israeli society, comprised of Jews from around the world, Palestinian Arabs and Druze (among others) with differing national ties, religious beliefs and cultural mores, leads to a complex nexus of overlapping and often conflicting affiliations and identities.
In this symposium, art scholars and artists will examine various works of contemporary Israeli art to understand the multiple identities and varieties of experience – Jewish, Palestinian, immigrant, female, male, LGBTQ – which are unique to Israel and also, in many ways, universal. The artists will discuss how their artwork reflects personal narratives regarding national, ethnic and gender identity, and dynamics of inclusion-exclusion.
