Encounter at the exhibition David Wakstein: A Multiparticipant Show (Hebrew)
Encounter with the curator Ruth Direktor and the artist David Wakstein
A solo exhibition that is at the same time a group show, perhaps even a mass show. Behind it are countless hands, and it brings together years of work. It raises questions about art and education; art and community; the figure of the artist as educator; collective creations and the artist’s ego. It offers group organization as a possibility, as a tactic, and as an ideology.
It is an exhibition in the making. Once it opens to the general public, the gallery’s appearance will gradually change as it fills up with the mosaic works that will be produced over the months ahead by David Wakstein in collaboration with groups of his former students, friends, and colleagues, as well as museum visitors. In October, at the closing of the exhibition, the gallery will look different.
