Portrait – A Century of Israeli Art
The second of two chronological episodes dealing with the formation and evolution of Israeli identity as it is reflected in art: from "sabra" art - rich in audacity and poor in material - through the multi-cultural revolution, and up to the generation of globalization, where Place is absent. Israeli art, caught between the local and the universal.
