New exhibition in Barbur


On Tuesday 14.02 we’ve had the “first” opening of Shachar Sivan’s and Yotam Koperberg’s exhibition. It was rainy and cold outside and really warm in the gallery.

Shachar and Yotam are living in Barbur for six days already and had turned it into their workshop. It is messy and curious.

On Wednesday 22.02 at 20:00 we’ll have the official opening of the show.

New exhibition in Barbur


Today, 12.02, Shachar Sivan and Yotam Koperberg, artists from Haifa, came to Barbur and started to work on their new show. They have brought a lot of stuff (3(!) full cars) with them from their studio and plan to find and construct a lot of new one. All of us are very curious.
On Tuesday 14.02 at 20:00 we’ll have the first opening of their exhibition. After the event Shachar and Yotam will live and work in the gallery for another week. Then, on 22.02, we’ll have the second opening.
There will be a lot of fun and surprises!
