Yair Garbuz: I am Painters
The Rappaport Prize for an Established Israeli Artist, 2015
Yair Garbuz' third solo exhibition at the Museum (1973, 1983) features works from the past five years. Once again his paintings turn out to be a comical, at times grotesque theatrical show, maybe even a circus or a carnival. Their humor is twofold: both visual and linguistic. More than ever, these new paintings display the artist's virtuosity and his ease with the Hebrew language and painting styles alike.
The exhibition and the catalogue were made possible thanks to the Bruce & Ruth Rappaport Foundation
