Sapir Exhibition Shows Artistic Drive will Survive Corona
Defying the havoc COVID19 has wreaked on the art world, Sapir Academic College’s School of the Arts is showcasing Tal Sasson’s exhibition, Black Teeth.
Michal Shamir, head of the Sapir’s School of Art, Society and Culture and curator of the exhibition, prizes the continuity of artistic endeavor. "Of course, health regulations have limited our ability to interact,” she laments, “and we’ve had to rely on social media to share this outstanding exhibition.” But with Israel’s vaccination drive proceeding apace, Shamir sees light at the end of the tunnel. “With a little more patience, our gallery will once again showcase the latest in artistic inspiration – for the benefit of our student community and the general public.”
Born in 1969, Tal Sasson holds an MA from London’s Wimbledon School of Art, and a BA from the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem. She has headed the program for Jewelry and Fashion Design at the Kibbutzim College. Sasson’s works are frequently exhibited at prestigious venues in Israel and abroad. Her decision to exhibit at Sapir is an evidence of the college’s growing importance for Israel’s art scene.
