The Beit Hasid is holding a special opening for exhibition "Black Humor" curated by Noa Lea Cohn, The Artshelter Gallery
Participanting Artists: Ilan Atlan / Shai Azoulay/ Shahaf Ben Shaya/ Yom Tov Blumenthal/ Dan Groover/Anshie Kagan / Ezra Landau/ Yiddy Lebovits/ Judith Levi / Etzion Mizrahi/ Yitzchok Moully/ Mendy Pellin/ Esther Malka Seruya/ David Baruch Wolk/ Marcelle Tehila Bitton
The exhibition deals with the identity and appearance of the Orthodox Jew and his ability to deal with a two-way view: interior and exterior. The exhibition's artists stand on the watershed: on the one hand, they use introspective, inner humor that belongs to the public in which they belong to the thin nuances within it. On the other hand, humor enables them to direct an external critical eye on themselves - 'the self-conscious stranger.' This pioneering exhibition is a contemporary seismograph of the sociological and ideological processes taking place in ultra-Orthodox society (under its various factions) under the radar.

"Who by Water, Who by Fire" curated by Vera Pilpoul
This exhibition comprises two monumental works, in soft pastel on paper. Exploring two cataclysmic biblical narratives that employ gestures of shape and color, in paintings that consist entirely of movement and energy, Ethan Dor-Shav takes us to the cosmic boundaries of the human experience. Elijah ascends to Heaven to the boundary of the metaphysical world of light, in a fiery storm surrounded by fiery horses. In a contrasting cosmic inversion, in a great storm Jonah plummets to the depths of the sea, to the brink of the shadowy Underworld. Jonah is swallowed by the ancient sea monster, and their symbiosis threatens Jonah’s very consciousness as a human. Dor-Shav’s previous solo exhibition, “Six Wings,” was shown at the Tel Aviv Artists’ House in October 2016.

About the exhibition:
Stone Telling means ‘from the earth, black’ in Chinese. The phrase was written by Eastern Han scholar Xu Shen, a literal and semantic description of ‘ink’ - its character is formed by combining ‘black’ and ‘earth’ - the pairing of the Chinese words for ‘water’ with ‘ink’ is the term used to describe traditional Chinese landscape paintings. The paintings are generally approached as subjective site-inspired performative expressions rather than accurate observations of the scene. Through this work, the artist aims to present a fluid meditation of land, home and identity a the Jerusalem Biennale.

Exhibiting "To and Fro: Contemporary French Artists and Rabbi Nachman of Breslov" curated by Dr. Batsheva Goldman Ida
Feature Artists: Céclie Reims, Yosef Joseph Dadoune, Sandra Zémor, Rachel Koskas, and Shmuel Ackerman
This exhibition showcases a group of French artists interpreting texts from 18th century Rabbi Nahman of Bratslav (b. 1772- d. 1810). As one of the most notable figures of the Hasidic Movement, Rabbi Nachman sought to pass his extentsive understanding of Jewish mysicism through his imaginative stories. This exhibition takes Rabbi Nahman’s intent one-step further, bringing together works of art inspired by his writings, which draw the viewer closer to the meaning of the tales and parables.

London Jewish life has found its way into the Jerusalem Biennale by way of Ruth Schreiber, a former resident of the UK capital who now lives in Israel. Ruth's work, Enter the Eruv, is a tribute to her husband, David, one the key activists who pressured for and eventually succeeded in building Britain's first eruv, a boundary that permits observant Jews to carry items or push buggies on Shabbat. Ruth will speak of her work and David will tell the story of the London Eruv case. The evening will end with a discussion about Eruv in Jerusalem.
