The event accompanies the exhibition "Nahum Tevet: Works on Glass, 1972-1975."
We cordially invite you to a lecture by Professor Itzhak Goldberg entitled Nahum Tevet in the Context of Art Installation which accompanies the exhibition Nahum Tevet: Works on Glass, 1972-1975. The exhibition presents an important series in the works of the Israeli artist, referring to the broader artistic and historical context, including minimalism, which dominated the art world in the late 70s of the 20th century. Tevet’s works on glass blend in perfectly well with the experimental undertakings of the world’s most progressive artists of the time. Itzhak Goldberg’s lecture will focus on another important aspect of Nahum Tevet’s creative activity – installation. The author of the book Installations (2014) comments on the relationship of the artist with minimalism, and discusses the visual tensions he achieves by combining used and unused spaces. In his lecture, Professor Goldberg will highlight the relationship between installation understood as work of the international character and its specific form created by the Israeli artist from a kibbutz.
