Out of the Cube
Tel Aviv Museum of Art presents, with the support of the Bruce and Ruth Rappaport Foundation, the exhibition “Out of the Cube,” curated by Ventilator—a nomadic exhibition space founded by artist Ishai Shapira Kalter. This is a short-term group exhibition of varying intensity, scattered throughout locations in Tel Aviv-Yafo. From Hayarkon Park to Hatikva Quarter, a choreography of sculptures in reality is consolidated. Local artists improvise their work near their habitat: within living quarters, in rented spaces, in a hotel, on a roof, from the balcony, in the backyard, or beside existing works of art.
The exhibition metaphorically extends the museum’s physical boundaries, as well as the role of the urban space—from functional space to artistic space. The works in the exhibition are dispersed throughout a wide-ranging exhibition area; they are non-monumental and sensual, their materiality is disrupted, at times hidden or devoid of defined shape. In this exhibition the senses of the flâneur—who now becomes a viewer of an exhibition—are sharpened and respond simultaneously to the works of art and to the daily moments chanced upon by the urban environment. “Out of the Cube” sizzles into life itself, blurs the customary concepts of time and exhibition, and is submersed like a buzz into the noisy urban landscape.
