“Making Contact – Dialogue Through Art” is a joint project undertaken by the Shekel Association’s “Si’im, Channels in the Community” department, the Bezalel Academy for Art and Design, and the School of Visual Theater.
This is the fifth time that the project “Making Contact – Dialogue Through Art” is taking place in the Barbur Gallery.
As in previous years, this year pairs of artists are participating in the exhibition. Together they have embarked on a journey of joint creation.
Each of the couples found and experienced a different and changing creative process that expressed the participants’ desires and talents while creating a challenging and inspiring work environment.
Curators and project coordinators: Michal Rapaport and Asaf Elkalai
