Before you lies the catalog of the annual festival of Modern art

The aim of this festival was to formulate the following image: “to show the most different aspects of modern art, how it is seen by new repatriates from the different countries of emigration and by those artist who live in Israel for a long time. … here we don’t do thematic exhibits – we are interested in the ability to handle the artistic language and technique of modern art…” And in this year we want to offer our already long standing tradition of exhibition “waves”: photo exhibit, “Mixed technique” and an exhibit in honour of one of the genres of modern art. But the hard year of 2014 – war with Gaza as well as the military conflict between Ukraine and Russia (the countries from which the majority of our artists come from) – made a few corrections to our plans; two of the first exhibitions were thematic. The festival opened with a photo exhibition “Summer 2014”. In this exhibition 20 photographers took part: new repatriates, for whom the events in Gaza was the first war, as well as those already used to the Israeli realities, professional photographers from the Israeli mass media, photographers who took part in the war as reservists who became famous for their reports from the battle line, as well as very new masters of their craft. However, it was not an exhibit of military photography; as in our lives everything is mixed here – photographs from the hospital as well as from the dance field, from the battles as well as from the renaissance fair which was barely interrupted even when the sirens yelled their disturbing cry. In these works, distress and hope, anger and adorableness – was everything through what we went through in this Summer of 2014. The second exhibition of the festival addressed the no less dramatic events of the last year – the events in Ukraine the ripples of which touched practically every “Russian” and “Ukrainian” Israeli. This exhibition put together artist’s repatriates from Ukraine: those who only just recently arrived and those who are living in the country for a respectable time already; those who only recently completed the education in Kiev and those who were born before the outbreak of hostilities in 1941… And even though the exposition not only had a ethnographical as well as a nostalgic character, in it one could still see the tradition cheerfulness of the Vyshyvanka and the lyrical Ukrainian landscape. All of this is also connected to the country of emigration as well as once own youth: many of the artists opened up their dusty folders and presented their works when they were still students… Nevertheless only, the third exhibition of the festival returned it its usual route: “Mixed Technique.” Again put us into an atmosphere of artistic search, which even though it calls back the pressing questions of time, but is everlasting and never changing in its drive to “look at the world from another point of view, the point of view of the artist.” Curators: Marina Genkina, Marina Shelest Tֿ he festival is done with the aid of the Ministry of Absorption and with the aid of the Center of Absorption of repatriated artists which exists within the Ministry of Absorption


Перед вами каталог ежегодного Фестиваля современного искусства

Задача этого Фестиваля была сформулирована нами следующим образом: «показать самые разные аспекты современного искусства, как его видят новые репатрианты из разных стран Исхода и те художники, которые уже давно в стране. ... тут мы не делаем тематических выставок – нас интересует владение художественным языком и техниками современного искусства...” И в этом году мы собирались продолжить уже ставшую для нас традиционной последовательность выставок: фотовыставка, «Смешанная техника» и выставка, посвященная какому-нибудь из жанров современного искусства. Но тяжелый 2014 год – война в Газе и военный конфликт между Украиной и Россией (странами Исхода большинства наших авторов) – несколько скорректировал наши планы – две первые выставки были именно тематическими. Фестиваль открылся фотовыставкой «Лето 2014-го». В выставке приняли участие 20 фотографов: новые репатрианты, для которых это первая война, и уже привыкшие к израильской реальности «старожилы»; профессиональные фотографы и журналисты израильских СМИ; фотографы-резервисты, которые стали известны своими репортажами с места военных действий, и совсем молодые мастера. Но это не была выставка военных фотографий: как и в нашей жизни, здесь намешано все – фотографии из госпиталя и из танцевального зала, с полей сражений и с «рыцарского турнира», который проходил и под звуки сирен. В этих работах тревоги и надежды, скорбь и умиление – все, через что мы все прошли этим летом 2014 года. Вторая выставка фестиваля адресовалась не менее драматичным событиям последнего года – событиям в Украине, эхо которых коснулось практически всех «русских» и «украинских» израильтян. Эта выставка собрала художников-репатриантов из Украины: и только недавно приехавших, и тех, кто в Стране уже очень давно; тех, кто учился в украинских художественных институтах и тех, кто родился там еще до войны 1941 года… И хотя экспозиция носила не столько этнографический, сколько ностальгический характер, в ней все же была и яркость традиционных вышиванок и лиричность украинского пейзажа. Все это связано для многих ее участников и со страной Исхода, и с воспоминаниями о собственноймолодости: многие художники открыли старые папки и показали свои еще студенческие работы... И только третья выставка фестиваля вернула его в привычное русло: «Смешанная техника» вновь окунула нас в атмосферу художественного поиска, который хоть и отзывается на сиюминутные вызовы времени, но вечен и неизменен в своем стремлении «посмотреть на мир другими глазами – глазами художника». Кураторы: Марина Генкина, Марина Шелест Фестиваль проводится при поддержке Министерства Абсорбции Израиля и существующего при нем Центра абсорбции репатриантов-деятелей искусств.
