Guest curator Lawrence Rinder looks at Rina Kimche’s ceramics in the context of Israeli Modernism, as well as touching on her connections to other international artistic currents. He focuses in particular on the works in the current exhibition, which date from the 1970s to the 2010s and show diverse expressions of her key themes: history, fragmentation, resilience, and survival.
This event is copresented by The Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life.
