Encounter at the exhibition Material Imagination: Center of Gravity / Israeli Art from the Museum’s Collection (in Hebrew)
Encounter with the assistant curator, Tal Broitman
The exhibition Material Imagination departs from the story of Israeli art as a chronological narrative running parallel to the national story. Material Imagination is a model of thinking conceived by philosopher Gaston Bachelard during years of delving into the four elements—earth, air, water, and fire—and their incarnations in the imagination and in art. The material imagination thrives in the dialogue between the materials of the world and archaic images—archetypes accumulated and etched in human consciousness.
