Broken Cisterns

CURATORS: ROTEM ROZENTAL AND LEAH ABIR

Broken Cisterns is the first US solo show by Eliyahu Fatal (Eli Petel), one of the most significant artists working in Israel today. It reflects the artist’s incessant and complex interest in Jewish identity inside and outside of Israel, while exploring Judaism as a religion, an ethnicity, a culture, a nationality, an aesthetic, a doctrine, a language, and an ethical code. The works directly confront both spirituality and religion, as well as the social and personal questions that have to do with inclusion in a spiritual world.

THIS IS NOT HALFWAY

This is Not Halfway begins in the transmutation of conditions of vision and experience that define local living in LA: in the eclectic sprawling architecture, the never-ending horizon line of mountains and deserts revealed in the unseen edges of the highway, diverse communal lives, endless congestions, and exceptional cultural richness. Observing works by emerging Israeli artists, this exhibition delves into the junctures of personal and national identities, and their fluctuating transformations. Specifically, it examines the impact of Los Angeles on the viewpoint of alien artists that have made it their home. Suggesting the urban landscape is a central protagonist of the artistic action, this exhibition traces the city in the work, and the work within the city.

LAUNCH SITES LA: EZRA ORION REVISITED

EZRA ORION, DAN LEVENSON | CURATORS: UDI EDELMAN, ROTEM ROZENTAL

Co-presented with the Israeli Center for Digital Art, the Platt and Borstein Galleries at AJU will become a temporary home for selected parts of Orion’s archive, including drawings and photographs that document past projects, plans, diagrams and correspondence. A VR station positioned in the space will take visitors on a tour of Orion’s sculptural installations in the desert.

At AJU’s Brandeis-Bardin Campus (Simi Valley), artist Dan Levenson presents a site specific project at the House of the Book, a hidden architectural masterstroke that bears intriguing similarities with Orion’s visual perspective.

Hagar Cygler and Yair Agmon share an interest in the material presence of photography, and its intricate relationships with memory. Seen together, their work juxtapose different, relevant and thought-provoking understandings of the role photography plays in the shaping of communal and private histories, and the impact of such narrative over institutional frameworks and familial existence.
