Floating Walls presents a multidisciplinary survey of works made by seven Israeli artists based in New York. The exhibition incorporates site-specific installation, video, painting, and sculpture. By using a variety of materials across media, the artists explore and reimagine the walls that surround them as both material and metaphor.
As Israelis living in New York, the artists in this exhibition are familiar with migration and reconstituting one’s definition of identity and relationship to home. Additionally, the works on view allow us to reflect on how the COVID-19 pandemic impacted our sense of place, as we entered periods of lockdown in our domestic environment, and renegotiated our position regarding public and private spaces.
